I have tried to use UpsetR to visualise the input file, which can be found here. How is it possible to make UpsetR accept an order defined in sets=c("Nlab", "NQLD", "Ngla", "Nsyl", "Ntom", "Ntab", "Natt", "Cann", "Stub", "Slyc", "Vvin", "Atha")?

with keep.order = T with keep.order = T

with keep.order = F with keep.order = F

> library("UpSetR")
> orthogroups_df<- read.table("orthogroups.GeneCount.tsv",  header=T, stringsAsFactors = F)
> #All species
> selected_species <- colnames(orthogroups_df)[2:(ncol(orthogroups_df) -1)] 
> selected_species
 [1] "Atha" "Cann" "NQLD" "Natt" "Ngla" "Nlab" "Nsyl" "Ntab" "Ntom" "Slyc" "Stub" "Vvin"

It's possible that upset is using factor levels for ordering, which is the default approach for ggplot2. If this is the case, then it can be fixed by converting the variable to a factor, and using an explicit level definition:

sets <- factor(sets, levels=sets)

For your specific example:

upSets <- c("Nlab", "NQLD", "Ngla", "Nsyl", "Ntom", "Ntab", "Natt", "Cann", "Stub", "Slyc", "Vvin", "Atha")
upSets <- factor(upSets, levels=upSets)
upset(orthogroups_df, 
   text.scale = c(1.4),
   sets=upSets, 
   order.by = "freq",
   keep.order=T, 
   intersections = intersections, 
   sets.x.label="Total number of orthogroups", 
   mainbar.y.label = "Number of orthogroups")
