UpSetR Preprint Posted
Posted on 25 March 2017
Venn and Euler diagrams are a popular yet inadequate solution for quantitative visualization of set intersections. A scalable alternative to Venn and Euler diagrams for visualizing intersecting sets and their properties is needed. We developed UpSetR, an open source R package that employs a scalable matrix-based visualization to show intersections of sets, their size, and other properties. A preprint describing the R package has been posted to bioRxiv.
UpSetR itself is available at https://cran.r-project.org/package=UpSetR and released under the MIT License. A Shiny app to generate UpSet plots is available at https://gehlenborglab.shinyapps.io/upsetr.
