The Care and Feeding of Wild-Caught Mutants
David Bingham Brown and Michael Vaughn

A CS706 class project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the tutelage of Ben Liblit in which we venture into the wilds of GitHub to stalk the most dangerous prey (well, not really): the wild software mutant.

During the adventure we discover that, while more computationally expensive than traditional mutation testing suites, we are able to generate mutants significantly more difficult to track, and thus, better to test the efficacy of software testing suites.
