morphogenesis

 [mor″fo-jen´ĕ-sis]
the developmental changes of growth and differentiation occurring in the organization of the body and its parts. adj., adj morphogenet´ic.

mor·pho·gen·e·sis

(mōr'fō-jen'ĕ-sis),
1. Differentiation of cells and tissues in the early embryo that establishes the form and structure of the various organs and parts of the body.
2. The ability of a molecule or group of molecules (particularly macromolecules) to assume a certain shape.
[morpho- + G. genesis, production]

morphogenesis

/mor·pho·gen·e·sis/ (mor″fo-jen´ĕ-sis) the evolution and development of form, as the development of the shape of a particular organ or part of the body, or the development undergone by individuals who attain the type to which the majority of the individuals of the species approximate.

morphogenesis

(môr′fō-jĕn′ĭ-sĭs)
n.
Formation of the structure of an organism or part; differentiation and growth of tissues and organs during development.

morphogenesis

[môr′fəjen′əsis]

the development and differentiation of the structures and form of an organism, specifically the changes that occur in the cells and tissue during embryonic development. Also called morphogeny [môrfoj′ənē] .

morphogenesis

The constellation of biological processes that determine an organism’s shape, which is inextricably intertwined with cell growth and differentiation, the other key elements of developmental biology.

And in the May 13 Current Biology, a group from the French Institute of Health and Medical Research in Nice, known as INSERM, reports that mouse embryonic stem cells become skin cells called keratinocytes if the stem cells are grown on a matrix of proteins and other molecules in the presence of vitamin C or a substance called bone morphogenic protein-4.
