Brings SummarizedExperiment to the Tidyverse

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

The tidySummarizedExperiment package provides a set of tools for creating and manipulating tidy data representations of SummarizedExperiment objects. SummarizedExperiment is a widely used data structure in bioinformatics for storing high-throughput genomic data, such as gene expression or DNA sequencing data. The tidySummarizedExperiment package introduces a tidy framework for working with SummarizedExperiment objects. It allows users to convert their data into a tidy format, where each observation is a row and each variable is a column. This tidy representation simplifies data manipulation, integration with other tidyverse packages, and enables seamless integration with the broader ecosystem of tidy tools for data analysis.
