    1010 * Cytoscape sends list of IDs/terms as a query.  This list should be included returned data table.  Otherwise, Cytoscape cannot map any attributes. 
     11 * Cytoscape BioMart client needs nicer GUI just like ''MartView'' web UI. 
     12    * Need to create category-oriented list of attributes. 
     13    * Need to tell user Max-selectable value

     31=== Implementation Plan === 
     32 * REST API does not support some of the metadata, such as sub-category of attributes and filters 
     33 * To extract those metadata fields, I need to use SOAP.  However, SOAP has some overhead and not as efficient as REST.

     35==== Solution ==== 
     36 * For building user interface, use SOAP.  Then the client has full-access to the metadata. 
     37 * Send actual Query through REST.  This is faster than SOAP.
