I'm glad it's useful (our preprint covering this and the Galaxy BLAST+ wrappers is out, and the formal publication in GigaScience is coming soon - so you'll be able to formally cite the script).

The e-values depend on the size of the FASTA files (or the temporary databases made from them), so are often not directly useful for comparison between datasets - that's why I deliberately only reported the bit score.

But yes, it ought to be fairly simple for you to add the evalue field to the BLAST commands and collect that in the final output. Do you know any Python programming?
