Tumor heterogeneity can arise from a variety of extrinsic and intrinsic sources and drives unfavorable outcomes. With recent technological advances, single-cell RNA sequencing has become a way for researchers to easily assay tumor heterogeneity at the transcriptomic level with high resolution. However, ongoing research focuses on different ways to analyze this big data and how to compare across multiple different samples. In this chapter, we provide a practical guide to calculate inter- and intrasample diversity metrics from single-cell RNA sequencing datasets. These measures of diversity are adapted from commonly used metrics in statistics and ecology to quantify and compare sample heterogeneity at single-cell resolution.
