Phage Display in Biotechnology and Drug Discovery, Second Edition provides a comprehensive view of the impact and promise of phage display in drug discovery and biotechnology. Building on the success of its previous edition, the book discusses current theories, principles, and methods in the field and demonstrates applications for peptide phage display, protein phage display, and the development of novel antibodies.

The book provides readers with an overview of the amazing breadth of the impact that phage display technology has had on the study of proteins in general as well as the development of proteins. It will be a valuable resource for those interested in using phage display and recombinant antibodies in basic research and drug discovery.

Key Features:

  • Describes the basic principles of phage display and the methods and systems that have been developed for key applications
  • Outlines applications for peptide phage display in the development of vaccines and high- throughput screens as well as the exploration of protein–protein interactions and enzyme substrate characteristics
  • Details the use of phage display in the engineering of protein stability, the identification and mapping of protein–protein interactions, and the development of catalysts
  • Provides broad coverage of the impact of phage display technology on the development of protein therapeutics
  • Presents expert opinions on future challenges in the field


“… The book covers broadly all aspects of phage-display technology and will be highly appreciated by those working with this technique and interested in applications. … The book is a clear invitation to use the phage-display technique both in biotechnology and drug discovery; … this is a very comprehensive book demonstrating the versatility and the value of phage display in many applications. It is clearly written giving an interesting historical background to many presently used variations on the phage-display technique.”
