MULLET (MULti-species LikElihood Tests)
A program written in C that can perform genomic scans for ancient multi-species balancing selection in the absence of trans-species polymorphism using the composite likelihood ratio tests of Cheng and DeGiorgio (2019).

Results of genome scans for selective sweeps using MULLET as applied to the YRI population from the 1000 Genomes Project and chimpanzees from the PanMap Project in Cheng and DeGiorgio (2019).
