Dear Alec,

Thank you for your response and it worked. Further, I
have another mathematical problem. I apologize ahead
as this question is not apt for this list. I am a
biologist working at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

As I listed in my previous e-mail (attached below)I mentioned I have 4 protein sets. I am now trying to calculate the combinatorics of these sets. My ultimate aim is to draw a venn diagram and find out the proteins that are unique to set C,S,E and H. I drew a venn diagram graph and I am banging my head to deduce the combinations. It is easy for me to deduce the intersections - that means the protein entries that are present in common. However, it proved very difficult to deduce the following:

I could calculate the following:

NP_*** present in both C and E (C intersection E) NP_*** present in both C and H (C intersection H) NP_*** present in both C and S (C ^ S) NP_*** present in both E and H (E ^ H) NP_*** present in both E and S (E ^ S) NP_*** present in both H and S (H ^ S) NP_*** present in C, E and H (C^E^H) NP_*** present in C, H and S (C^H^S)

NP_*** present in E, H and S (E^H^S)

NP_*** present in E, S and C (E^S^C)

It is very difficult for me to deduce the following:

NP_**** entries specific to E NP_**** entries specific to H NP_**** entries specific to S

I am not sure about your notation, but in R terms, if you want the items specific to E, H, or S, how about something like:

specific to E -- setdiff(e, union(c,union(h,s)))

specific to H -- setdiff(h, union(c,union(e,s)))

specific to S -- setdiff(s, union(c,union(e,h)))
