Default Exome sequencing: should we do local realignment

Dear colleagues,

With ever-increasing quality of NGS platforms, is it still desirable to do local realignment for HiSeq 2500 human exome reads from an Agilent Sureselect library?

Thank you

Local realignements are helpful not because of sequencing quality concerns, but because of the general difficulty to get alignments right around indels, especially towards the end of reads .
Btw, just saw this nice paper: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0075402

I normally trim the first and last 5bp of reads for this reason (to avoid miscalled indels at the tips), after the reads are aligned. If you don't realign around indels, I recommend this. Might be a good idea even if you do realign; even with realignment, there are some features that you cannot resolve, since there is not enough information at the read tips.
