The data in the Navigation Area
organized into a number of Locations
. When the
Biomedical Genomics Workbench
is started for the first time, there is one location called
(unless your computer administrator has configured the installation otherwise).
A location represents a folder on the computer: The data shown
under a location in the Navigation Area is stored on the
computer in the folder which the location points to.
This is explained visually in figure 3.2. The full path to the system folder can be located by mousing over the data location as shown in figure 3.3.
Figure 3.2: In this example the location called 'CLC_Data' points to the folder at C:\Documents and settings\clcuser\CLC_Data.
Figure 3.3: Mousing over the location called 'CLC_Data' shows the full path to the system folder, which in this case is C:\Users\boester\CLC_Data.
