Support searching using SNP names

SNPs are named in an rs### form (for example, rs429358).

We should permit the user to search genenetwork using these SNP names. Currently, we only permit searching using explicit coordinates (for example, "chr:19 position:44908684"). The user has to look up the SNP name in an external database and resolve it to coordinates before searching. This is a needless extra step and can be automated.

Implementing this will require us to have a database (perhaps dbSNP) of all SNP names somewhere in GeneNetwork.
