We have three primary places to store and work with data. 

What you should put on the archive

  • all your data, organized by lab notebook
  • figures, any other material that is relevant 
  • talks, powerpoint slides, etc, organized in their own folder
  • all the data that went into a paper in its own folder, organized by figure #
  • A file that describes the organization of your folder

What you should NOT put on the archive

  • pictures of your cat, dog, or significant other 
  • PDFs of papers you thought were very interesting
  • code. 
  • the entire contents of your C:\ drive


List of hard drives in the lab

This is a list of unshucked hard drives in the lab, with what they contain, who they're assigned to, and their specifications. If they're not assigned to anyone, they are empty and exist in the common pool of hard drives. All hard disk names are names of elements – if you find a hard disk that has a different name, then it is using an outdated naming scheme and needs to be renamed.
