Many multi-planet systems have been discovered in recent years. Some of them are in mean-motion resonances (MMR). Planet formation theory was successful in explaining the formation of 2:1, 3:1 and other low resonances as a result of convergent migration. However, higher order resonances require high initial orbital eccentricities in order to be formed by this process and these are in general unexpected in a dissipative disk. We present a way of generating large initial eccentricities using additional planets. This precedure allows us to form high order MMRs and predict new planets using a genetic N-body code.
