Organizing Raw Data (non-sequencing)
backups, etc folder with main project subfolders with year subfolder with month subfolder with project tag
Organizing References Using Zotero
We use Zotero to organize manuscript references and add these references to our manuscripts, grants, and other lab documents. Zotero has a stand-alone app, a web browser extension, and a plug-in for Microsoft Word and Google Docs.
We also use a Zotero Group Libary, so that we can all share and use the same references when collaborating on work. Please have Morgan invite you into the Shared Group.
You should keep a private library as well, which will automatically sync between any number of computers. First, add files to your private collection and then add them to the Sammons Lab Shared Group.
