Defines functions cluster_qtl_summary

#' Make a summary table of clusters of QTL.
#' Creates a data.frame summarising information about groups of QTL clustered using cluster_qtl().
#' Clusters will be labelled with the chromosome and index, with an optional prefix.
#' @param qtl_clusters Data.frame containing information on clustered QTL, usually from the output of
#' cluster_qtl.
#' @returns Data.frame listing information for each cluster. Information includes the chromosome number,
#' number of QTL in the cluster, then the range and weighted mean values for position (cM), effect size
#' and precentage of the variation explained.
#' @export
