I am a computer science student working on genetic algorithms and want to ask
a "silly" question.
Recessive genes are generally not "good" for the organism, yes?
If so why do they exist? Why do two alleles exist together?
Is it to conserve genetic diversity (without manifesting a trait
with a poor survival value??
Forgive my ignorance.
