Term Detail
GO term:epidermis morphogenesis
Synonym: hypodermis morphogenesis
GO id:GO:0048730
Definition:The process in which the anatomical structures of the epidermis are generated and organized. The epidermis is the outer epithelial layer of an animal, it may be a single layer that produces an extracellular material (e.g. the cuticle of arthropods) or a complex stratified squamous epithelium, as in the case of many vertebrate species.
Number of paths to term: 7
