Epitope library

Epitope library

(Science: molecular biology) large collection (hundreds of millions) of peptides each encoded by a randomly mutated piece of dna in a phage genome and expressed on the surface of that bacteriophage, sometimes as an N terminal extension of a coat protein. Particular phages can be selected by a binding assay and since the peptide has its encoding dna associated with it sequencing is straightforward.
