These notes describe the Long Term archive space for previous work and group members. We have 2Tb of space divided in to 4 stores:

/cs/research/bioinf/archive0
/cs/research/bioinf/archive1
/cs/research/bioinf/archive2
/cs/research/bioinf/archive3

Archive0#

Paper archive. I propose the following layout. We have a top directory called paper_archive, inside that each paper that the group produces has it's own directory named what a plain english meaningful name. In paper_archive we additionally include a README that gives a full, clear description of each directory, with paper title and references.

Each paper's dir is then named with this scheme /archive0/paper_archive/MEANINGFUL_DIRECTORY_NAME_FOR_PAPER

The contents of this directory should include a final copy of the submitted paper, any supplementary material which backs up the paper and should be made available for any external request. In this directory there should be a README that describes what all the files and directories are. Any large datasets or files should likely be zipped/tarred, although the readable/final version of the paper might be better left accessible.

Example#

There is now an example of the NAR server paper in archive0
/cs/research/bioinf/archive0/paper_archive/README
This lists the paper directories, with a brief description and the reference

/cs/research/bioinf/archive0/paper_archive/NAR_Server_paper_2010/README
This file details what files/data for the paper has been archived.

Archive1#

Old user & projects archive. I (Dan B.) propose that this is used to house old users directories/materials are we've gone through assorted machines and users' materials. Possible place for old projects too (e.g. Anna's all uniprot GenTHREADER). Again the top directory should have a README that explains which user the directory is from and what is in it. And then each subdirectory should have its own README that explicitly describes the contents.

Archive2#

(Temporary) recovery files from catastrophic events.
