Current issue diagnosis: 

This form on the UBIO search page uses method="get" as opposed to "post", which the 2 image databases used. 

To connect and output data to the form, I create a URLConnection object, but its default method is post, not get (even though everything I've googled says that the default is get). Can't figure out how to change that setting to "get" because that's what I think is causing the output not to go through. 

Ideas, anyone?

My friend Asaf helped me figure it out. I'm currently working on parsing the result page for the common name string, so I've made progress. I'll post again once it's complete and integrated into PhyloWidget.
