GO term:immune system process
GO id:GO:0002376
Definition:Any process involved in the development or functioning of the immune system, an organismal system for calibrated responses to potential internal or invasive threats.
CommentsNote that this term is a direct child of 'biological_process ; GO:0008150' because some immune system processes are types of cellular process (GO:0009987), whereas others are types of multicellular organism process (GO:0032501). This term was added by GO_REF:0000022.
Number of paths to term: 1
