Dear people,

does anyone know a software solution to the storage of sequencing files. I always have problems with handling them because you download them and put it in a directory but after a while hundreds of them are accumulating and if you are looking for a spcific one after a while its like searching a needle in the haystack! Is there a prog like for example itunes to handle sequencing files?

Many thanks in advance!

Regards,
p

What operating system are you using?


If you know what you are looking for (it sounds like you do) use built in directory search software - Windows has this, as does mac ... linux probably does too.

If you are using a *nix based system (including mac) you could even use the terminal.

ls | grep -i myFile = would find myfile or myFile
find . -name \*myfile\* = would find xxxxxmyfilexxxxxx, where x is any character.
there is even "locate"

You could use a database - e.g. mysql. In this case a single table would suffice.
