Evolution of the genome size. Randomly generated organisms containing ~10 genes evolved as described in the text for 5,000 generations. A. Dependence of the number of genes in the resulting organisms on the value of genome size penalty N (see text). B. Dependence of the fitness potential of evolved organisms, calculated without imposing penalty for the genome size, on the number of genes in their genomes.
