Construction of synthetic combinatorial libraries is described that allows for the generation of a library of motifs rather than a library of compounds. Peptide libraries based on this strategy were synthesized and screened with model targets streptavidin and anti-β-endorphin antibody. The screens resulted in observation of expected motifs providing evidence of the effectiveness of the suggested approach.
