7-way nested Venn Diagrams

3:21am, fifth coffee. Late hour inspired a nested 7-way Venn Diagram, a blob of shared miRNAs targeting E2F genes. A thing of terrible beauty, inside every human cell. Code below, a simple list rendered with the venn package.

mirnas<-list(mirnas_e2f1,mirnas_e2f2,mirnas_e2f3,mirnas_e2f6,mirnas_e2f7,mirnas_e2f8,mirnas_mycn)
names(mirnas) <- c("E2F1","E2F2","E2F3","E2F6","E2F7","E2F8","MYCN")
png("plots/075_mirnas_7way.png",w=1000,h=1000,p=30)
venn(mirnas,ilab=TRUE,zcolor="style")
