Yes Mike,
It seems they are comparing the pearls with genes . (Imaginary actions by pearls, not real actions).

More than thirty years ago Dr. Barbara McClintock, the Nobel Prize winner, reported that genes can “jump,” as
pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another.

A. as pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
B. like pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
C. as pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
D. like pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
E. as do pearls that move mysteriously from one necklace to some other one

Kudos to good explanations

To state comparisons:
LIKE + NOUN
AS + CLAUSE

More than thirty years ago Dr. Barbara McClintock, the Nobel Prize winner, reported that genes can “jump,” as
pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another.

A. as pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
B. like pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
C. as pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
D. like pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
E. as do pearls that move mysteriously from one necklace to some other one

Than you can eliminate C and E because they are unidiomatic.
one necklace to another
one necklace to others
