The study aims to evaluate and benchmark the performance of rapid DNA library kits for shotgun metagenomics. The general criteria for kits to be evaluated in this study will be based on - variable range of input DNA, enzymatic or transposase-based fragmentation method, one bead clean-up. We will also prep libraries using TE or MQ water to establish baseline data for negative controls and the “kitome”. With this study the MGRG aims to provide a platform to compare the kits for - efficiency, reproducibility, total time, quality, sequencing outcomes, using known DNA known standards, which will be beneficial to the research community.
