Term Detail
GO term:determination of left/right symmetry
Synonym: determination of left/right asymmetry
GO id:GO:0007368
Definition:The establishment of an organism's body plan or part of an organism with respect to the left and right halves. The pattern can either be symmetric, such that the halves are mirror images, or asymmetric where the pattern deviates from this symmetry.
Number of paths to term: 8
