Bio::Search::Hit::Fasta(3) Hit object specific for Fasta-generated hits


# You wouldn't normally create these manually;
# instead they would be produced by Bio::SearchIO::fasta
use Bio::Search::Hit::Fasta;
my $hit = Bio::Search::Hit::Fasta->new(id=>'LBL_6321', desc=>'lipoprotein', e_val=>0.01);


Bio::Search::Hit::HitI objects are data structures that contain information about specific hits obtained during a library search. Some information will be algorithm-specific, but others will be generally defined, such as the ability to obtain alignment objects corresponding to each hit.
