Diversity, in the form of genetic diversity, chemical diversity etc, is a very important concept in several areas of scientific research, and calculation of diversity is one of the most important considerations in pre-clinical drug discovery research and, in particular, in design of diverse chemical libraries for combinatorial chemistry and compound selection for High Throughput Screening (HTS). DivCalc is a WindowsTM based software that implements a previously published method of diversity calculation [1]. This facilitates sampling of a given data matrix to obtain the most diverse compounds that span the entire descriptor space.
