The existence of the genome population in condition of radiation environment has been considered. The differences between the laws of the allele frequencies for autosomal genes and genes linked to sex are described. Radiation conditions were found at maintenance of the balance of the Hardy-Weinberg genotype in the population, as well as conditions of complete elimination of the targeted allele by ionizing radiation. Conclusions about the nature of radiation resistance of the population are drawn.
