Please read the recent points of view by alexander Lex & nils Gehlenborg in Nature Methods (08/2014) about representing sets and intersections[1]

BITS scripts to create Venn pots from precomputed counts

Please refer to the wiki page Create Venn plots from counts and download the code from the BITS GitHub repo[2].

software to build Venn-related diagrams diagrams

  • UpSet - Visualization of Intersecting Sets (web-server)

software to build BoxPlot diagrams

If Venn diagrams are nice to display recall data, Box plots are ideal to show data distribution in many more details than a simple average value. You can generate Bow plots in few clicks using the following web application.

  • BoxPlotR a web-tool for generation of box plots
