Defines functions plotBed

Documented in plotBed

#' A function to boxplot 'score' column of a BED dataframe,
#' per unique chromosome name in the 'chrom' column. The resulting plot also highlights outliers
#' based on the inter quartile range (IQR). The genome wide median is plotted as a pink line through the boxplots.
#' @param bed A dataframe containing 'score' and 'chrom' columns (dataframe).
#' @param plotting Should the plot object be sent to the default device? (boolean, defaults to TRUE).
#' @keywords boxplot BED genomics bioinformatics
#' @import ggplot2
#' @export
#' @examples
#' plotBed(W303_S)
#' plotObject <- plotBed(W303_G2,plotting=FALSE)
