Symbolic search-based testing

Arthur Baars, Mark Harman, Youssef Hassoun, Kiran Lakhotia, Phil McMinn, Paolo Tonella, Tanja Vos
2011 2011 26th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2011)  
We present an algorithm for constructing fitness functions that improve the efficiency of search-based testing when trying to generate branch adequate test data.  ...  The test for significance was done using a onesided, paired Wilcoxon signed rank test.  ...  Rather than make an arbitrary choice of algorithms to study, we choose to empirically study a local search (the widely used Alternating Variable Method (AVM) of Korel [3] ) and a global search (the Genetic  ...

Estimating Seven Coefficients of Pairwise Relatedness Using Population-Genomic Data

Matthew S. Ackerman, Parul Johri, Ken Spitze, Sen Xu, Thomas G. Doak, Kimberly Young, Michael Lynch
2017 Genetics  
There are nine pairwise relatedness coefficients in the most general model, and we show that these can be reduced to seven coefficients for biallelic loci.  ...  Simulations show that the procedure is nearly unbiased, even at 3× coverage, and errors in five of the seven coefficients are statistically uncorrelated.  ...  Kelley Thomas and the Hubbard Center for Genome Studies for their continued help with the sequencing; The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics and especially James Ford for the preparation of libraries  ...
