molecular diversity

there are many methods and indices to estimate molecular similarity, but it is quite difficult to estimate-calculate molecular diversity.
Could someone give me, please, references (articles, web-site, softwares) about this point?
Thanks in advance, I will sumarize if someone is interested.
