There are several reasons why someone could use Medusa. Medusa now comes with several layout and clustering algorithms to analyze biological networks on the fly without the need of intermediate platforms. It is open source so that code can change according to the needs of each project and it is computationally cheap. It is able to support both directed and undirected graphs and it is a great tool for data integration since users can connect nodes with up to 10 different ways. To complement its functionality with strengths of other software, it is currently compatible with several established visualization tools. It is offered as an applet which makes it a great tool to support web applications.
