Interested in using TileDB for genomics (not variants, more like genome-wide signals) and been looking at the implementation for variants (GenomicsDB). They claim that using TileDB gets around the N+1 problem (can add a new sample easily) - but I’m looking at the docs and I don’t see a way to append to an already created array.
The only way I can think of is at the time of building the space array, specificy a very high dimension for samples, as I think these are not materialized if they do not contain any data.
Does TileDB support appending a row or a column to an existing array, or is the above a way to do it instead? What is the maximum size of dimensions if it is the case?
