Description of fields

Since this is for the community, it might be worth having a short one-line instruction for each field (shown in italics here), 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?)
