GO term:membrane organization
Synonym: cellular membrane organisation
Synonym: cellular membrane organization
Synonym: membrane organisation
Synonym: membrane organization and biogenesis
GO id:GO:0061024
Alternate id: GO:0016044
Definition:A process which results in the assembly, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of a membrane. A membrane is a double layer of lipid molecules that encloses all cells, and, in eukaryotes, many organelles; may be a single or double lipid bilayer; also includes associated proteins.
