Typically I will start a sequence analysis project in which users later email me crucial details, which I have to record somewhere in the project folder.
This is getting out of control as the number of project folders expands. It seems obvious that I need some kind of LIMS system. It has to be loose since I do so many different types of analyses. Perhaps a wiki?
One feature I would need is a filter which reads my email and collects relevant messages based on keywords or some way to add easily add emails to a project, like a issue tracker would offer (we have JIRA). I really need some way to easily designate emails as being relevant to a project so I am not relying on copy-and-paste.
How do you manage this problem?
