Shannon-Wiener Curve Service

The Shannon index has been a popular diversity index in the ecological literature, where it is also known as Shannon's diversity index, Shannon–Wiener index, and (erroneously) Shannon–Weaver index. The measure was originally proposed by Claude Shannon in 1948 to quantify the entropy (hence Shannon entropy, related to Shannon information content) in strings of text. The idea is that the more different letters there are, and the more equal their proportional abundances in the string of interest, the more difficult it is to correctly predict which letter will be the next one in the string. The Shannon entropy quantifies the uncertainty (entropy or degree of surprise) associated with this prediction. Now, CD ComputaBio offers shannon-wiener curve service to meet the specific needs of different customers.

Overall solutions

CD ComputaBio provides you with the Shannon-Wiener curve service, which is an index reflecting the diversity of microorganisms in the sample.

CD ComputaBio can use the microbial diversity index of each sample's sequencing amount at different sequencing depths to construct a curve to reflect the microbial diversity of each sample at different sequencing amounts. When the curve tends to be flat, it indicates that the amount of sequencing data is large enough to reflect most of the microbial information in the sample.


CD ComputaBio uses mothur to calculate the shannon values under different random samples, and uses R language tools to make graphs.
