I want to find environment specific genes in a genome. so that I can differentiate two genomes of same species coming from different ecological niche.
What type of data (and how much samples) do you have available? Are you really looking for a whole gene, or would a few variants (SNPs) also be sufficient to differentiate the organisms?
Look at this post. It's 3 years old but it may be helpful.

Some others are much older bacterial articles

Which of these links discusses how to detect a gene unique for a specific environment?
