By Surender Khurana, Amorsolo L. Suguitan, Yonaira Rivera, Cameron P. Simmons, Antonio Lanzavecchia, Federica Sallusto, Jody Manischewitz, Lisa R. King, Kanta Subbarao and Hana Golding


Using whole-genome-fragment phage display libraries, Hana Golding and colleagues identify the viral epitopes recognized by serum antibodies in humans who have recovered from infection with H5N1 avian influenza
