<p>Computational scientists often encounter code-testing challenges not typically faced by software engineers who develop testing techniques. Mutation sensitivity testing addresses these challenges, showing that a few well-designed tests can detect many code faults and that reducing error tolerances is often more effective than running additional tests.</p>
