Welcome to qdiv’s documentation!

qdiv is a python package for analyzing results from rRNA gene amplicon sequencing or similar data.

With qdiv you can subset and rarefy the data, generate a consensus table based on several count tables, calculate alpha- and beta diversity indices (focusing on Hill-based indices), plot a heatmap or PCoA, carry out null model analysis (Raup-Crick, NRI, NTI, beta NRI, and beta NTI, extended to all possible diversity orders), and run the Mantel- and Permanova tests.

Several scientific papers have been studied to program the algorithms used in qdiv. The key references can be found under Citations.
