Ok, it got me again.
I always get confused between the terms 'polymorphic' and 'heterozygous'. That said, I did look into the differences and am fairly confident about the distinction. Until I came across this term "highly heterozygous".
I have a highly polymorphic dataset (DNA from multiple species pooled and sequenced together) that I am trying to assemble. I had in mind an assembler that is designed for "highly heterozygous diploids".
Biologically and by definition, is there any difference between the two terms (highly heterozygous vs polymorphic)?
Thanks a bunch for your help.
