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 (shown in italics here), on top of the box for entering data:
Please see guidelines on how to write a concise description: http://wiki.wormbase.org/index.php/How_WormBase_writes_a_concise_description
1. Enter your e-mail address.
E-mail: Free text box
J: Can the form map e-mail to WBPerson ID, if not alerts relevant person to create one. -- how about autocomplete on email and/or name to display name + email, then they pick it. and if it's a completely new person/email, send email to Cecilia to create the person.
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.
J: 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?
3. Choose the appropriate species.
Species: Autocomplete, Drop-down with predetermined values.
J: Same feature, 'No Match' with free text box option, if desired species is not present in dropdown.
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, WBPaper identifier or a DOI. Please note that WormBase will not accept meeting abstracts, Gazette articles or personal communications as references.
Reference: Auto-complete obo
J: Same feature, 'No match'and free text box.
Also, once PMID or WBPaper is entered, can form pull up Paper information, meaning title etc etc, similar to the OA pulling up paper information in Term information, or what P2GO does.
