The effect of genetic recombination (or crossover) by sexual reproduction on the time until a novel set of genes performing a combined function appears, spreads, and becomes fixed is studied. First, we study a haploid finite population with many binary loci, in which only one sequence (called a functional gene set) is significantly advantageous over the… CONTINUE READING
