cDNA Display: A Stable and Simple Genotype–Phenotype Coupling Using a Cell-Free Translation System
A cDNA display method was developed based on the mRNA display method to increase its stability and efficiency for the directed evolution of various kinds of peptides and proteins. In this method, the puromycin-linker is a key molecule to realize smart genotype–phenotype coupling. A recently improved puromycin-linker and its use were explained in detail for the in vitro selection of peptides and proteins using the cDNA display method.
