       Bio::Search::BlastStatistics - An object for Blast statistics


                 # this is a wrapper to hold the statistics from a Blast report
            my $bs = $result->get_statistics();
                 # you can get a statistic generically, like this:
            my $kappa  = $bs->get_statistic("kappa");
                 # or specifically, like this:
            my $kappa2 = $bs->get_kappa();


       This is a basic container to hold the statistics returned from a Blast.
