A heat map displaying covariates and coloring clusters

Bioconductor version: 2.8

Add an extra graphical display at the bottom of a heat map, indicating for each column a) whether it has one of several binary properties or not, and b) the value of a quantitative variable. A cutting threshold for the sample dendrogram can also be specified, and the resulting clustering of the columns is indicated by coloring both the dendrogram and the extra variable display.
