Welcome to Mutaiton Testing repository

Mutation Testing is a fault–based software testing technique that has been widely studied for over three decades. The literature on mutation testing has contributed a set of approaches, tools and empirical studies. This repository aims to provide a full coverage of the publications in the literature on Mutation Testing.

Mutation Testing Survey

Using this repository, a comprehensive analysis and survey of Mutation Testing work has been conducted. The paper presents the results of several development trend analyses. These analyses provide evidence that mutation testing techniques and tools are reaching a state of maturity and applicability, while the topic of mutation testing itself is the subject of increasing interest. This paper is currently published as a technical report, available from here. If you want to cite results from the survey, here is the BibTeX entry:
