# RE: [R] How to plot more than 3 sets in Venn Diagrams?

Date: Fri 10 Jun 2005 - 00:53:02 EST

Venn did 4 sets with ellipses (see wikipedia.)

(There was an article in the last year (I think) in one of my math journals that presented someone who made these complex Venn diagrams as artwork and sold, but I can't remember the person's name right now.)

Subject: [R] How to plot more than 3 sets in Venn Diagrams?

I'm trying to plot Venn diagrams with more than 3 sets (5 actually) in order to describe graphically the genetic variation between populations.

I tried the limma library but realised it can only plot 3 sets.

Is there any solution? Of course I could plot the chart manually but it'll take too long (have other datasets)..... One of my dataset is given below.

THanks for any advice.
