Ploidy parameter in UnifiedGenotyper
I just want to know what you mean by "-ploidy" in UnifiedGenotyper.
--sample_ploidy / -ploidy ( int with default value 2 )
Ploidy (number of chromosomes) per sample. For pooled data, set to (Number of samples in each pool * Sample Ploidy).
I am working on an inbred (homozygous) strain of mice. I have only one sample. Should I use number 2 here that represents the diploid nature of the genome. I am confused as it says Ploidy (number of chromosomes) per sample.
