Data structure

The data in the Navigation Area is organized into a number of Locations. When the CLC Genomics Workbench is started for the first time, there is one location called CLC_Data (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.
