comment What determines the number of chromosomes an organism carries?
I've added a few refs that may serve as starting points. When you say "recombination", do you mean recombination (the normal pairing and crossover of homoologous chromosomes during meisois) or chromosome-rearrangement (mutation leading to novel chromosomal structure)?

comment Does RNA polymerase move around DNA or does DNA rotate benath the polymerase?
Thanks WYSIWYG. The motor idea is something else that I find interesting. Those refs would be useful...

I'm thinking more of the topology of strands of RNA and DNA. What happens to the mRNA/DNA as the polymerase moves around the spiral of the DNA?
