We generally follow the advice given in this article:

Noble WS (2009) A Quick Guide to Organizing Computational Biology Projects. PLoS Comput Biol 5(7): e1000424. doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000424

For running projects, usually a species-specific folder is generated under /projects/cees/in_progress. Under there, we usually have these subfolders:

  • data --> immutable files that are the input of analyses
  • analysis --> where the actual work is being done
  • scripts --> source code for the analyses

In the analysis folder, you will often see dated subfolders, or one subfolder for each subproject.
