Competing Interests

I have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: G.N. was a consultant for Theraclone and is a Co-Founder of FluGen. Y.K. has received speaker's honoraria from Chugai Pharmaceuticals, Novartis, Daiichi-Sankyo, Toyama Chemical, Wyeth, and GlaxoSmithKline; grant support from Chugai Pharmaceuticals, Daiichi Sankyo Pharmaceutical, Toyama Chemical, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.; is a consultant for Theraclone and Crucell, and is a Co-Founder of FluGen. This does not alter our adherence to all the PLOS Pathogens policies on sharing data and materials. The other authors declare that they have no competing interests.
