Adjusting priors for heterozygosity for pooled samples in UnifiedGenotyper

Hi to all,

I am calling variants in a pooled sample of 3 human samples, using UnifiedGenotyper and a ploidy of 6 and I was wondering if it is necessary to adjust the heterozygosity rate (--heterozygosity) to be 0.003 instead of the default of 0.001, or if the model used in the pooled sample calling already takes this into account.Thanks a lot,

Jaime
