#' Read a WIG file
#'
#' @param file A path to a file or a connection.
#' @param genome_info An optional character string or a Ranges object
#' that contains information about the genome build. For example the USSC identifier
#'"hg19" will add build information to the returned GRanges.
#' @param overlap_ranges An optional Ranges object. Only the intervals in the file
#' that overlap the Ranges will be returned.
#'
#' @description This is a lightweight wrapper to the import family
#' of functions defined in \pkg{rtracklayer}.
#'
#' @return A GRanges object
