Defines functions genePlot

Documented in genePlot

#' Plot of means and inter-quantile ranges of all genes.
#' 
#' \code{genePlot} plots the means vs. the inter-quantile ranges of the gene
#' 	expression values of all genes with the possibility to highlight interesting sets of genes.
#'
#' @param Y A matrix of gene expression values or an object of the class \code{simualteGEdata}.
#' @param index A vector of indices of genes of interest to be displayed in a different color, if \code{index=NULL} no genes are highlighted.
#' @param legend A character string describing the highlighted genes.
#' @param col.h The color of the highlighted genes.
#' @param title A character string describing the title of the plot.
#' @return \code{genePlot} returns a plot.
