Hi Roopa,

As far as I know, a BLAST report never contains the complete sequences of the hits. If it includes any part of the hit's sequence, it will be the part that matches the query.

You'll have to use the hit's ID or accession to get its complete sequence from somewhere else. You can use Bio::DB::Genbank to do that, for example.

See
