eulerAPE: Drawing Area-Proportional 3-Venn Diagrams Using Ellipses

Figure 1

Examples of area-proportional 3-Venn diagrams drawn with circles (A–C) and polygons (D–F) in literature.

(A) Comparing the cell-type of differentially regulated genes after an anti-cancer drug treatment [11]. The method used to draw the diagram has not been noted. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 3B in [11], previously published under a CC BY license. (B) Summarizing prognostic indicators of severe malaria [12]. The method used to draw the diagram has not been noted. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 3 in [12] (with the N value and the percentages in parenthesis removed), previously published under a CC BY license. (C) Analysing differences and similarities between identified chicken egg white proteome in three different studies [13]. Drawn using Venn Diagram Plotter [http://omics.pnl.gov/software/VennDiagramPlotter.php]. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 2A in [13], previously published under a CC BY license. (D) Analysing overlaps between gene libraries [14]. Drawn using DrawVenn [5]. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 4B in [14] under a CC BY license, with permission from John Wiley and Sons, original copyright 2009. (E) Studying transcriptome variation of different tissue types of the male field cricket, namely testis, accessory gland and the rest of the body [15]. Drawn using Convex Venn-3 [51]. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 1 (left) in [15] under a CC BY license, with permission from Nathan Bailey, original copyright 2013. (F) Summarizing genes affecting Top1-induced DNA damage identified in three different studies [16]. Drawn using DrawEuler [55]. This diagram is a reprint of Figure 3A in [16] (with added numeric labels indicating the quantitative data that according to the article each region in the diagram should represent), previously published under a CC BY license.
