Entomology Software | Software and Analytics | VSNi


How Can Data Science Advance Entomology Research?

For over 20 years VSNi has developed a range of data and analytics software to support scientists, researchers and breeders within the biosciences. Designed by statisticians with non-statisticians in mind, our products are ideal for users looking for exceptional decision-making tools that are able to accommodate increasingly large and complex datasets.


Genstat provides an easy-to-use environment where only a few instructions or selections from the options menu are needed to undertake simple or more complex analyses, bringing reliable and accurate analytics to your entomology research.

For those in the entomology sector, Genstat offers multivariate methods for analysing and interpreting biological and environmental entomological data, including principal components analysis, multi-dimensional scaling, correspondence analysis, canonical correlation analysis, discriminant analysis and cluster analysis.

The Ecology menu in Genstat is widely used and provides tools for investigating and modelling species abundance, calculating diversity indices and estimating the number of species.

Generalised linear models (GLMs) can be used for analysing non-Normal data, such as counts and proportions.
