The previous explanations for these observations also seem to apply here.
For example, performance testing is generally only required when performance becomes an issue.
Likewise, usability testing will often not apply to a lot of research software -
there is little need to ensure that users understand how a script works when you're the only person who will use that script!
Likewise, usability testing will often not apply to a lot of research scripts,
where the functionality of a piece of software is generally more important than the way it is used.
Similarly, some of these techniques are complicated to set up, and may require assistance and support to implement.
For example, static code analysis can have a lot of value in preventing bugs from appearing by identifying common programming mistakes.

so these results may not be representative of researchers who are less comfortable with coding.
There are also limitations in terms of the conclusions that we can draw from this.
I have suggested two reasons for the variance in familiarity and regular usage between different techniques,
I have suggested two reasons
(lack of applicability and difficulty of application)
for the variance in familiarity and regular usage between different techniques,
but for each individual technique it is not possible to determine which reason is stronger,
or indeed if these are the most common reasons at all.
To solve this, we would need to do further analysis to validate our assumptions
