The other day I was playing around with some software that determines
the level of positive/negative selection at the amino acid level for a
given gene. Perhaps it would help. It's called TreeSAAP
Here's the paper introducing it:
Although it may be more fine-grained that what you need, you could
theoretically use it to determine if a gene underwent positive selection
or not. TreeSAAP will tell you where in the sequence the selection
occured and for what amino acid property. Sounds like more that you need
:) Hey, it was worth mentioning.
