>>Biomarker classification


>>>>Acetogenic lipids


>>>>Acyclic and cyclic isoprenoids

>>>>Polycyclic isoprenoids






>>>Diagenesis and catagenesis

>>Biomarker as Source Indicator

>>>Steranes, hopanes etc


>>>Environmental Indicators

>>>Indicators of Euxinia

>>Experimental methods to extract biomarkers

>>>Source rock
