Creating a DelayedMatrix of Scaled and Centered Values

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

Provides delayed computation of a matrix of scaled and centered values. The result is equivalent to using the scale() function but avoids explicit realization of a dense matrix during block processing. This permits greater efficiency in common operations, most notably matrix multiplication.
