Diversity Index Statistics

A diversity index (also called phylogenetic index) is a quantitative measure that reflects how many different types (such as species) there are in a dataset (a community), and that can simultaneously take into account the phylogenetic relations among the individuals distributed among those types, such as richness, divergence or evenness. These indices are statistical representations of biodiversity in different aspects (richness, evenness, and dominance). Now, CD ComputaBio offers diversity index statistics service to meet the specific needs of different customers.

Overall solutions

CD ComputaBio provides the analysis service of microbial diversity in community ecology. The diversity analysis (Alpha diversity) of a single sample can reflect the abundance and diversity of microbial communities, including a series of statistical analysis indexes to estimate the species abundance and diversity of environmental communities.

The index for calculating community richness include:

(1) Chao-the Chao1 estimator; is an index that uses the chao1 algorithm to estimate the number of OTUs contained in a sample. chao1 is commonly used in ecology to estimate the total number of species.

(2) Ace-the ACE estimator; an index used to estimate the number of OTUs in the community, proposed by Chao, is one of the commonly used indices for estimating the total number of species in ecology, and is different from Chao 1's algorithm.

The indexes for calculating community diversity include:

(1) Shannon-the Shannon index; used to estimate one of the microbial diversity indexes in the sample. It and the Simpson diversity index are often used to reflect the alpha diversity index. The larger the Shannon value, the higher the community diversity.

Simpson-the Simpson index; used to estimate one of the microbial diversity indexes in a sample. It is commonly used in ecology to quantitatively describe the biodiversity of an area. The larger the Simpson index value, the lower the community diversity.
