As you suggest, you have a lot of options. Venn diagrams can be
useful for a quick survey of overlapping group memberships, especially
if (as in your case) you have no more than three groups. Google "R
cran venn" and you will see a few.
Your choice of technique should be guided by the scope and depth of
the analysis you wish to perform. Here at Bioconductor, we tend to
think that the analysis of experimental data is a nuanced and ongoing
process, in which early stage explorations often lead to questions and
analyses not obvious at first blush. R is a great language for
exploring data, and may be worthwhile for you to learn: point-and-
click analysis tools will take you only so far.
If you could give us a better idea of what you hope to learn from your
analysis, we can probably give you more specific advice.
