Symbiosis literally means “together with life”. There are a number of symbiotic relationships such as predator/prey, parasite/host, commensalism where one partner benefits without harming the other, and mutualism where all partners benefit from the relationship.

In this blog, I focus on endosymbiosis that is mutualistic. I believe it has been a driving force in the evolution of eukaryotic cells, such as we have.
