gapmap: Functions for Drawing Gapped Cluster Heatmap with ggplot2

The gap encodes the distance between clusters and improves interpretation of cluster heatmaps. The gaps can be of the same distance based on a height threshold to cut the dendrogram. Another option is to vary the size of gaps based on the distance between clusters.
