Description : Draw Lex et al.'s UpSet plots with Pandas and Matplotlib
This is another Python implementation of UpSet plots by Lex et al. [Lex2014]_.
UpSet plots are used to visualise set overlaps; like Venn diagrams but
more readable. Documentation is at https://upsetplot.readthedocs.io.
This upsetplot library tries to provide a simple interface backed by an
extensible, object-oriented design.
I have found this package a useful way of generating UpSet style plots when
using Python, Matplotlib, and Pandas. I've seen several other groups in my
work's consortium using UpSet plots, so they do seem to be becoming more
popular, though I don't know who is using Python and who is using the R
My hardest question is which team to put it in, Python, Science, or Med. I'm
tempted to go with the Science team as it's an advanced plotting library. I
think it was developed for bioinformatics but it's useful to anyone who wants
to compare a number of different sets.
