Biopanning is the procedure of selecting binding partners from phage display libraries. In this affinity-driven selection procedure, specific binders against a target of choice are enriched from a phage display library during consecutive cycles of incubation, washing, amplification and re-selection of bound phage. Multiple rounds of selection are necessary to enrich specifically binding phage particles over a general background of unspecific sticky phage.
