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 ?
