We are comparing genes with pearls . So, "like" is appropriate here.

As is used to compare action of a noun, while like is used to compare noun.

So here like is needed. out of B and E, B is more accurate

[quote="firebollB looks OK

(A) a verb after 'pearls', not ~ing
(B) OK
(C) 'do that move' ==> awkward, 'others' should be 'another'
(D) 'do' after 'like' ==> not grammatical
(E) the same with (C), 'some other one' ==> 'another'[/quote]

Agree with B.
