PMID: 28717149
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-05887-9

[…] was adopted to calculate the difference in expression abundance between the two samples for each gene. false discovery rate values less than 0.001 were considered to be significantly different., medusa software was used for data display based on the comparison of the protein-protein interaction data from rice (, […]

PMID: 28627690
DOI: 10.3892/mmr.2017.6785

[…] included within an abstract. statistical analysis was performed using the same methods described for the nlp analysis of g6pd, and the subsequent network was visualized using the open-source medusa software program version 3.0 ( (). genes were classified according to associated signaling pathways. genes involved in various signaling […]

PMID: 28367976
DOI: 10.1038/srep45950

[…] the data of these two sets of numbers were searched in the string database, to restore the interaction map of these proteins. a protein–protein interaction network map was then created using the medusa software (, how to cite this article: yu, e.-m. et al. proteomic signature of muscle fibre hyperplasia in response to faba bean intake […]

PMCID: 5057407
PMID: 27724938
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-016-1830-9

[…] with scores > 50 and p < 0.05., protein interaction networks, built using the online database resource search tool for the retrieval of interacting genes (string) [], were visualized by medusa [], a java application for visualizing and manipulating graphs of interaction. the interactions include direct (physical) and indirect (functional) associations derived from the genomic […]
