this protocol is in Current Protocols in Molecular Biology.  i've never
used it but i stumbled across it the other day.  it's basically a colony
screen (from a library) except that you use an Ab instead of a DNA probe
for the hybridization.  i'm not sure if the protocol includes the use of
PVDF membranes but that can be easily modified.
