With significantly increased sequencing outputs, manual reading of sequence results can impede an efficient and accurate analysis. Mutation Surveyor is a useful in silico tool developed by SoftGenetics that assists the detection of sequence variations within Sanger sequencing traces.What is mutation testing and how does it work?
Mutation testing is a fault-based testing technique where variations of a software program are subjected to the test dataset. This is done to determine the effectiveness of the test set in isolating the deviations. It sounds a little complicated, isn’t it? What You Will Learn:What is surveyor DNA endonuclease?
This technology is based on a new mismatch-specific DNA endonuclease from celery, Surveyor nuclease, which is a member of the CEL nuclease family of plant DNA endonucleases.What are the different types of mutants in mutation testing?
Killed Mutants: These are mutants that are killed after mutation testing. We get these when we get different results from the original and mutated versions of the source code. Equivalent Mutants: These are closely related to live mutants, in that, they are ‘alive’ even after running test data through them.
