Some time ago I deprecated and then removed the plotQC function because it was just a trivial wrapper around other functions. I don't recall the exact release when this happened, maybe it was deprecated in BioC 3.8 and removed in 3.9.

Why did I do this? Well, for example, if you're going to write:

plotQC(sce, type="highest-exprs")

you might as well just write


which takes fewer characters and is more explicit anyway.
