Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am attempting to wrote a CGI application for a beginning bioinformatics class based on data I have extracted from the following web site:
I was wondering if anyone had was willing to share his or her general suggestions regarding a user interface, e.g., flow from selection to action or selection to next page. As it currently stands, I was thinking of presenting the user with a collection of radio buttons each of which would allow the user to select the indicated action (label) before a submit button would load a secondary page where the actual input of data and action would occur. The information, e.g., sequence data, gene names, etc., would be stored in a SQLite3 database. Since I have very little experience designing a user interface, I am not confident on constructing the layout and I would prefer it not be too minimalistic.
