*.sharedJest

Estimating the fraction of sequences that belong to shared OTUs.

Just as the Chao1 richness estimator is a function of the number of OTUs observed once or twice in a sample (6), the estimators of the fraction of sequences in shared OTUs is a function of the number of shared OTUs that are observed at least once or twice in the community being analyzed (8, 7):


<math>S_{sharedJest} = \frac{S_{sharedChao1}}{S1_{chao} + S2_{chao} - S_{sharedChao1}}</math>,


where,

Ssharedchao1 = estimated number of OTUs shared between A and B using the SharedChao1 estimator.
S1chao = number of OTUs estimated in A using the Chao estimator.
S2chao = number of OTUs estimated in B using the Chao estimator.


For this example the value was 0.88.
