gammaMap is a program for detecting natural selection in sequence data from one or more species. It is based on a combined population genetics-phylogenetics model of selection. gammaMap estimates the distribution of selection coefficients, and allows localization of the signal of selection using a Bayesian sliding window approach. The signature of selection is detected from the contrast in the dN/dS ratio within and between species. The method and modelling approach are described in
