Polygeneic is the original English version of the word. Polygenic is, I assume, an americanisation of that word. The same can be seen with all words with the body 'geneic', e.g. allogeneic vs. allogenic and so forth. Damn those lazy Americans! ;) But anyway, those shorter versions seem to be taking over, so prepare to use them.
