I have utilized the software get_homologues in order to find ortholog clusters of 4 bacterial strains.

I have obtained a huge table file with the following format:

Strains Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
Organism_A 1 1 1 1 3
Organism_B 1 1 1 1 0
Organism_C 1 1 1 1 1
Organism_D 1 1 1 1 1


Do you know a venn plotter software that is able to read this kind of table?
