Finisher 'noun' (Biology - Genome) In genome sequencing field, A Finisher is one who analyzes an electropherogram, a graphical representation of data received from a sequencing machine and yields one read, in comparison to the consensus, a sequence that has been generated from the alignment of multiple reads, presented by the computer programs Phred and Phrap, to determine if the consensus accurately reflects the nucleotide sequence; when the data is incomplete or inadequate, the finisher calls more reactions with appropriate chemistry in order to gather more data.
