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.

(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.
