epitope library
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.
