This post demonstrates the use of two very cool R packages - ggrepel and patchwork. ggrepel deals with overlapping text labels (Code#1 at the bottom of this post): patchwork is a very convenient new package for combining multiple different plots together (i.e. what we usually to use grid and gridExtra for).
