# Beta diversity measures (skbio.diversity.beta)¶

This package provides implementations of beta diversity measures for computing sample dissimilarity. Users of this package should also explore scipy.spatial.distance.pdist, as it contains implementations of additional beta diversity metrics with interfaces similar to those provided here.

## Functions¶

 unweighted_unifrac(u_counts, v_counts, ...) Compute unweighted UniFrac weighted_unifrac(u_counts, v_counts, ...[, ...]) Compute weighted UniFrac with or without branch length normalization
