Overall Satisfaction with Gephi

I have used Gephi personally, for my own research. I have a 2014 paper published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology in which I present a network map plotted with Gephi (Hala and Huggett 2014).
  • Excellent construction and visualization of network graphs.
  • Excellent 'mapping' of edge weights to network graphs.
  • Convenient calculations of graph metrics such as degree and betweenness centrality.
  • Maybe an easier way to import data. I had to import source data as a Pajek file.
  • Gephi produces very high quality images that are suitable for publication in high tier journals.
I have used Pajek in the past. Gephi has a more user friendly interface and allows better visualization and presentation of network maps.
My work is deeply involved with the network analysis of biochemical networks. Gephi provides an excellent platform with which to display various network properties.
Gephi is a good tool for biological network construction and visualization.
