The process of finding the genes related to a query gene. 1) Obtain OMIMID corresponding to the query gene; 2) Obtain the PMIDs of the papers cited under the OMIMID; 3) For each of these PMIDs, find the related PMIDs with a similarity score higher than a given threshold; 4) Find the OMIMIDs under which papers with these PMIDs are cited; 5) Find the genes corresponding to these OMIMIDs.
