Dear Martin,
Thanks for your help. I want complete representation of all the data set in the graph as scatter plot with added indicator bar showing the mean and sd of each scatter plot. 

I found your idea of combining box plot and graph bar in a single figure also working. Then, my question is:
could you help me with making box plot and scatter plot (instead of bar chart) in a single figure? 

Thanks,
Amr
