The Lyrics

I wrote this awhile ago for my old job, relating to DNA sequencing
Closure time - Edit the raw data before it's sent out to the world
Closure time - Run all of the programs we developed in C and in Perl
Closure time - One last chance to close the gaps before annotation is here
Closure time - When it's time to go meet at Guapos for beer

I know who I want to make the clones
I know which primers can close the holes
I know how to sequence a genome
On my own....

Closure time - time to check the coverage of the basepairs that you have run
Closure time - this gap won't be closed until your assembling and your edits are done
So order all your primers and walk off your oligos, I hope you don't hit a dead end
Closure time - every new beginning comes from some other sequence's end

I know who I want to make the clones
I know which primers can close the holes
I know how to sequence a genome
On my own....

Closure time - time to check the coverage of the basepairs that you have run...

I know who I want to make the clones
I know which primers can close the holes
I know how to sequence a genome
On my own....

Closure time - every new beginning comes from some other sequence's end...

I won't lie. This parody confused me. I did not understand some of the stuff. But I'm sure it made sense. But I do know that it fit, like, PERFECTLY in with the actual song. Good Job!!
