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?
