In this brief article I show how the notion of coarse graining and the Renormalization Group enter naturally in the dynamics of genetic systems, in particular in the presence of recombination. I show how the latter induces a dynamics wherein coarse grained and fine grained degrees of freedom are naturally linked as a function of time leading to a hierarchical dynamics that has a Feynman-diagrammatic representation. I show how this coarse grained formulation can be exploited to obtain new results.
