Any good genetic algorithms involving you-split, i-pick?

I've always heard it as "you divide, I decide"...

That said, I'm not sure how that applies in a GA world. It's
been a while since I've done any coding with GAs, but I don't
recall any facets related to the You Divide, I Decide problem.
It sounds like a simple optimization of "equality", which would
be a normal use of a GA. This would apply for both the division
and the decision, depending on which side the GA is (the "you" or
the "I") or two diff. GAs can be on either side of the process.

There's an iterated solution (no link) for more than two players. Say
two GAs encounter the same resource (or if some is left after they've
begun consuming)-- i.e., encounter each other, a strict survival-of-
fittest can arise among a population, even leading to specialization
and organ.

I'm not sure if time factors in however, i.e. whether GAs are useful
in spacetime; bacteria Firmicute produce spores to guard during
stress. What do ideal structures have in common with real ones?; and
if so, does you-split-i-pick yield anything useful in ideality? What
are ideal bacteria, what do they want, and are they interesting?
