How does Genomicsdbimport for polyploids work?

    Hi Homa Papoli,

    I believe the note about diploids is only present in the GenomicsDBImport documentation for much older versions of GATK, but this is no longer a limitation. In the current documentation, it is not stated that the tool is limited to diploids, as this has been addressed in newer versions of GATK. This is why the tools are running properly for you, and I don't think you should see any issues as a result of ploidy. 

    Kind regards,
