The information from Entrez Gene is in the form of tab-delimited text 
files, so parsing and loading should be pretty straightforward?  Of 
course, there is no sequence information loaded.  In fact, given what 
is available in Gene right now, is it sufficient to load RefSeq?  The 
Gene Reference Into Function is not included with refseq, nor is the 
omim (for human) mapping, but the gene ontology, function, and summary 
function, as well as mapping to Gene ID are included, so will that do
