sechm: Complex Heatmaps from a SummarizedExperiment

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

sechm provides a simple interface between SummarizedExperiment objects and the ComplexHeatmap package. It enables plotting annotated heatmaps from SE objects, with easy access to rowData and colData columns, and implements a number of features to make the generation of heatmaps easier and more flexible. These functionalities used to be part of the SEtools package.
