ISE Publications

ISE publishes the international online journal Endocytobiosis and Cell Research ( The journal is aimed at symbiosis researchers and cell biologists.

Endocytobiosis and Cell Research, an international research journal and organ of the “International Society of Endocytobiology e.V.” (ISE), launched the first issue in 1984. The journal was founded to publish information on evolutionary biology, symbiosis research and cell biology. The journal offers a communication forum for (micro)biologists, bioinformatics, biophysicists, biochemists, geneticists, medical scientists, veterinary researchers, and molecular biologists that are concerned with the origin, development, differentiation, evolution and phylogeny of endosymbioses and cell research (including endocytoparasitism) in the context of the eukaryotic cell.
