An R and ggplot2 code example of slopegraph https://github.com/leondutoit/slopegraph/blob/master/slopegraph.

R Example code.

Generate sample data

a <- data.frame(go = LETTERS[1:10], enrich = runif(10, 0, 10))
b <- data.frame(go = LETTERS[1:10], enrich = runif(10, 0, 10))
a <- cbind(a, status ='before')

b <- cbind(b, status = 'after')
ab.melt <- rbind(a, b)

Add an offset column for label positioning

ab.melt <- transform(ab.melt, offset = c(rep(2, times = 10), rep(-2, times = 10)))

library(ggplot2)
ggplot(data = ab.melt, aes(x = status, y = enrich)) + geom_line(aes(group = go, colour = go)) + geom_text(aes(label = go, hjust = offset, colour = factor(go)))
