BQSR / PrintReads : is BI flag required ?

Hi Gatk team.

The size of my BAM has greatly increased (2x) after the recalibration.

I think it's because of the BI:Z:* metadata in the read. Apart from archiving the original qualities, is there any interest in keeping this BI:Z ? If yes, how can I remove it ?

Thanks !

Pierre
