A section of Biology (ISSN 2079-7737).

Section Information

The Immunology Section focuses on publishing significant findings related to all topics in Immunology, with a particular emphasis on comparative and evolutionary immunology. It welcomes original research addressing the immune system throughout the biology of vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as defense mechanisms of plants and resistance to infections. Molecular and cellular immunology, but also whole animal studies and (immuno)genomic approaches are within the scope of interest. Fundamental and descriptive approaches to mechanisms basic to the immune system are welcome. Model animals throughout biology are of particular interest. The section will publish several types of manuscripts (reviews, original articles, positioning papers, etc.) and encourages Special Issues.
