BSA — why does SimilaritySearchHit contain a list of Alignments

  • Key: BSA-16
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3557
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ( Philip Lijnzaad)
  • Summary:

    during our implementation work we came across the following a point that
    is puzzling:

    why does SimilaritySearchHit contain a list of Alignments? A SearchHit is a
    match of one target sequence with one or more matched sequence. Practically
    by definition, each such a hit is one alignment (even if the alignment is
    more than pairwise). So we should either change the spec to be

    valuetype SimilaritySearchHit : SearchHit

    { public Alignment the_alignment; }


    or, leave the spec and document that the only legal length for
    alignment_list is 1. Thoughts?
