I am working in Python and performing Ka/Ks (dN/dS) ratio analysis.

I would like to ask for any suggestions for how to go about performing "within gene" or "sliding window" Ka/Ks analysis, such that a Ka/Ks ratio can be given for positions along the gene sequence.

This MATLAB tutorial really sums up exactly what I need, but I am obliged by my boss to use Python.

Doing sliding window dn/ds analyses is not a good idea: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0003746

thank you very much for this gem @karl.schmid, but indeed we plan to use sliding windows more for visual understanding as the paper suggests
