BQSR quality strings

pelinpelin StockholmMember

Hi! I have a question about the BQSR quality strings, those output as BD:Z, BI:Z and BQ:Z in the final BAM file. I would like to decrease the footprint of our final analysis files. I was thinking to remove those quality strings after the variant calling (since they are required for variant calling). I read in one of your posts that it could be possible to retrieve those quality strings back if one has the recalibration tables by just using printreads option? Could you confirm that this is the case?
