An easy reference for genetic algorithm

My field is Coding Theory and my background is Algebraic, there are many applications of Genetic Algorithm in Coding Theory, I would to know the easiest and the most elementary and introductory note about “Genetic Algorithm in Coding Theory”, also is this algorithm using in Crypto too?
