Description of fields

1. Enter your e-mail address.

E-mail: Free text box

JC: Can the form map e-mail to WBPerson ID, if not alerts relevant person to create one.

Gene: Drop-down, auto complete obo, same as WBGene field in most OA interfaces.

JC: Can there be a 'No match' option maybe right at the top, if user chooses this, then they will need to use a free text box, how do we force this sequence?
