	I've heard a little bit about a new technique that sounds very 
promising called phage display.  From what I understand you insert a library 
of DNA into a phage in such a way that the protein coded for by the DNA insert
is "displayed" on the surface of the phage coat.  Then you could immobilize
your protein of interest (using GST or the like) and pull down not only the 
proteins which interact with yours but the DNA that codes for the protein as 
well.
	I'd like to try this in my experements but would like to know more
about it and discuss it with others who have experience with the technique 
or at least have heard about it.
