Question: What are the best examples of sample naming conventions?
Entering edit mode

What are some best in class systems for naming samples, subjects, and other entities?

I understand TCGA moved from human readable identifiers to UUIDs because they prevent a lot of human-introduced errors. But I wonder if the costs outweigh the benefits for, say, smaller trio-based exome projects?
