Term Detail
GO term:morphogenesis of an epithelium
Synonym: epithelium morphogenesis
GO id:GO:0002009
Definition:The process in which the anatomical structures of epithelia are generated and organized. An epithelium consists of closely packed cells arranged in one or more layers, that covers the outer surfaces of the body or lines any internal cavity or tube.
Number of paths to term: 6
