Definición de phage display en inglés:

sustantivo

Example sentences
  • Here we describe an approach for the mapping of linear peptide epitopes of fragmented genes by phage display.
  • Newer techniques (for example, phage display technology to generate novel antibodies) have, and will be, developed for evolving new genes in bacteria, or in test tubes, for eventual use in plants.
  • The generation of peptides (either through phage display or chemical synthesis) is routine and highly reliable, as are the techniques required for their analysis and purification.
