If you are completely lost, here is a short description of what CSB.DB is and is not. CSB.DB is a database that uses transcriptional data and at some point also metabolic and protein data. CSB.DB uses correlation and mutual information to compare if levels of the abovementioned do co-behave in some way. Thus if you ask the question which gene behaves similar to your gene of interest, you just enter your gene code on the appropriate site and press submit. You will then retrieve all genes co-responding with your gene in (usually) ascending order. To give even higher-level information you are also presented with a pie-chart showing how co-responding groups fall into certain categories. This might help you to figure out what class your gene belongs to or eventually where it might be expressed. Consider for example a gene that is mostly co-regulated with chloroplastidic genes. In such a case your gene might also be chlorplastidic.
