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

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.
