Specifications for a Community Annotation Form
Description of fields
Since this is for the community, it might be worth having a short one-line instruction for each field, on top of the box for entering data:
1. Enter your e-mail address. E-mail: Free text box
2. Enter a gene name, example abc-1, the form will convert it to the appropriate WBGene ID.
Gene: Drop-down, auto complete obo, same as WBGene field in most OA interfaces.
(Q: Should we allow users to enter genes not in WormBase, which means we will have to provide an extra free-text box.)
3. Choose the appropriate species.
Species: Drop-down with predetermined values.
(Q. Do we need this field?)
4.Write a concise description for the gene you've chosen.
Concise description: A big box for free-text, similar to the 'Description Text' box in the Concise Description OA.
5. Enter a published paper reference, either a PMID or a WBPaper identifier. Reference: Auto-complete obo
(Should this be an autocomplete paper obo, or just a free text field to enter the identifier?)
