- Next Gen Sequencing Software (Finchtalk):
Once a lab is up and running with Next Gen technology they quickly face the data management problem. Basic file system technology and file servers allow groups to store their data in nested directory structures. After a few runs, however, people realize that it gets really hard to know what data go with which run or with which sample – the Excel file storing that information gets lost, or the README file didn’t written.
Now I think I removed my whole backlog so let’s get ready for some hardcore genetics in the next few days…
