Abstract: We have used the Monte Carlo based computer models to show that selectionpressure could affect the distribution of recombination hotspots along thechromosome. Close to critical crossover rate, where genomes may switch betweenthe Darwinian purifying selection or complementation of haplotypes, thedistribution of recombination events and the force of selection exerted ongenes affect the structure of chromosomes. The order of expression of gene sand their location on chromosome may decide about the extinction or survival ofcompeting populations.
