      Description

      Currently, genes are stored internally as gene symbols. Gene symbols are not properly versioned, change frequently, and are reused. While users should still be allowed to enter genes using the gene symbol, they should be stored internally using a proper ID. Both DECIPHER and GeneMatcher use Ensembl IDs internally, so I suggest we follow suit.
