#' @description
#' Miscellaneous methods for the \linkS4class{SingleCellExperiment} class
#' that do not fit in any other documentation category.
#' 
#' @section Available methods:
#' In the following code snippets, \code{x} and \code{object} are \linkS4class{SingleCellExperiment} objects.
#' \describe{
#' \item{\code{show(object)}:}{Print a message to screen describing the contents of \code{object}.}
#' \item{\code{objectVersion(x)}:}{Return the version of the package with which \code{x} was constructed.}
#' \item{\code{sizeFactors(object)}:}{Return a numeric vector of size factors of length equal to \code{ncol(object)}.
#' If no size factors are available in \code{object}, return \code{NULL} instead.}
#' \item{\code{sizeFactors(object) <- value}:}{Replace the size factors with \code{value},
#' usually expected to be a numeric vector or vector-like object.
#' Alternatively, \code{value} can be \code{NULL} in which case any size factors in \code{object} are removed.}
#' }
