Potential for merging GenomeDBs or adding to an existing database
I have adopted using GenomicsDBImport for my workflows involving ~2500 samples to begin. This data structure works well and I am very happy it was implemented. However my data is such that I will be adding more samples every 2-3 months or so for the foreseeable future. It becomes very cumbersome and space-prohibitive to manage both gVCFs and a GenomeDB, as well immensely time consuming to include all samples again and again to maintain this. Is there a way now, or a plan to add new samples to existing data, or merge GenomeDBs? I anticipate this will become a common need.
