Shannon entropy has many applications in theory of communications.
Then, using Shannon entropy, those indexes are dedicated weights.
Wolf (2005) introduced by the Shannon entropy is a valuable and imperative measure in data handling, for example, information pressure or haphazardness extraction, under the supposition which can ordinarily securely be made in correspondence hypothesis that a specific irregular investigation is freely rehashed commonly.
Then the experimental results were analyzed and compared using Shannon entropy and logistic regression.
The Shannon entropy favors neither rare nor common species disproportionately, but instead weighs each species exactly by its frequency in the sample.
Sequence variability across HLA genes was quantified by calculating the Shannon entropy (23, 24) at each position of the multiple sequence alignment (MSA) of HLA-A, HLA-B, and HLA-C alleles respectively.
