This work has been funded by SystemsX.ch, the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology, under IPhD grant 2009/025 and RTD grants 51RT-0_126008 (InfectX) and 51RTP0_151029 (TargetInfectX), evaluated by the Swiss National Science Foundation. E.S. was supported by the ETH Zurich Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the Marie Curie Actions for People COFUND program (grant FEL-13 12–1). We are grateful to Mihaela Zavolan for insightful discussions.

The genome sequence used in this research was derived from a HeLa cell ine [dpGAP:phs000640.v1.p1]. Henrietta Lacks, and the HeLa cell line that was established from her tumour cells without her knowledge or consent in 1951, have made significant contributions to scientific progress and advances in human health. We are grateful to Henrietta Lacks, now deceased, and to her surviving family members for their contributions to biomedical research. This study was reviewed by the NIH HeLa Genome Data Access Working Group.
