It's just a genetic algorithm, only your population is a set of instructions that generate a subject to be tested. There are minor differences in the way you apply multiple mutations, so you evaluate groups of them instead of each individually, but for the scoring you effectively single out the commonalities among the worse individuals. Hard to tell whether ...

First of all, for a lot of realistic problems, the fitness function evaluation is usually orders of magnitude greater in complexity than the rest of the genetic algorithm. This is not always true, but often is true (e.g. imagine trying to optimise a simulation where you need to execute the simulation completely to obtain the fitness). So optimising the GA ...
