  Epidermal morphogenesis
Morphogenesis is the development of form, of tissues, of organs, and of organisms.
Morphogenesis of post-embryonic organs such as the gonad, vulva, and male tail, is described in the Sex determination section of WormBook.
Morphogenesis of the epidermis involves both autonomously generated changes in epidermal cell shape and position, and interactions with internal tissues, including the developing nervous system and body wall muscles.

  Mycology Workshop: Morphogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Morphogenesis flexibility is a hallmark of the pathogenic fungi.
Many fungal pathogens of animals, in particular those that cause subcutaneous and deep mycoses, are characterized by varying degrees of "morphogenetic plasticity" both in vitro and in vivo.
As we identify specific molecules which are involved in morphogenesis, strong efforts should be made to isolate the corresponding genes, since these genes can tell us much about the structure and function of the molecules.

  Morphogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Morphogenesis (from the Greek morphê shape and genesis creation) is one of three fundamental aspects of developmental biology along with the control of cell growth and cellular differentiation.
The study of morphogenesis involves an attempt to understand the processes that control the organized spatial distribution of cells that arises during the embryonic development of an organism and which give rise to the characteristic forms of tissues, organs and overall body anatomy.
The term morphogenesis can also be used to describe the development of unicellular life forms that do not have an embryonic stage in their life cycle, or to refer to the evolution of a body structure within a taxonomic group.

 Morphogenesis
The study of morphogenesis involves an attempt to understand the processes that control the organized spatial distribution of cells that arises during the embryonic development of an organism and which give rise to the characteristic forms of tissuess, organss and overall body anatomy.
In the human embryo, the change from a cluster of nearly identical cellss at the blastula stage to a post-gastrulation embryo with structured tissuess and organss is controlled by the genetic "program" and can be modified by environmental factors.
Morphogenesis of the species Drosophila melanogaster (a species of fruit fly) starts with the construction of asymmetries within the oocyte and proceeds to pattern formation along the embryonic axes.

 What Is Morphogenesis?
Morphogenesis is one of the major outstanding problems in the biological sciences.
Morphogenesis also addresses the problem of biological form at many levels, from the structure of individual cells, through the formation of multicellular arrays and tissues, to the higher order assembly of tissues into organs and whole organisms.
Knowledge from scientific inquiry about morphogenesis and its translation into the study of regenerative medicine will help us prevent birth defects, control abnormal tissue growth, slow the deterioration and aging of tissues, facilitate the repair, regeneration and replacement of injured tissues, and eventually even allow us to produce replacement tissues and organs in vitro.

 Morphogenesis
Morphogenesis have had some change of personnel but, at October 1995 were: Adam Bohman, prepared violin, balalaika, objects; Ron Briefel, vocals, electronics, engineering; Clive Graham, springs, electronics, tapes; Clive Hall, guitar, percussion, objects, keyboards, electronics, engineering, piano; Michael Prime, water machine, biofeedback, radio, electronics, engineering; Roger Sutherland, percussion, piano.
This is the aural equivalent of action painting, in which form and structure are determined entirely by the evolving character of the sound materials and the moment-to-moment decisions and interactions of the players.
Members of Morphogenesis are also involved in other activities; for example, Adam Bohman is a member of Conspiracy, plays in an irregular (and so far unrecorded) duo with Lol Coxhill, and has produced a series of 'talking tapes', exemplified by Belgian barrage.

 Morphogenesis and Biophotons
As shown by our previous investigations (reviews: Beloussov et al., 1994; Beloussov and Luchinskaia, 1996; Beloussov, 1994, 1996, 1997), morphogenesis (that is, the formation of new shapes and structures during development of organisms) can be considered as a largely non-linear interplay of passive and active mechanical stresses.
If coming from the morphogenesis proper to the cell differentiation, we are confronted with the passage of potencies to actualities, which has its parallels in the consciousness problem.
We were able to show, that the maintenence of a proper stress field during one of the most crucial stages of vertebrate morphogenesis, the early gatrula stage, is necessary for establishing a proper developmental order and the quantitative correlations in the development of axial rudiments.

 distribution
Morphogenesis started recording in January 1985 and our first public performance was at the West Square Festival in London in July '85.
Then Morphogenesis, and my poor misguided friend Mike, moved out of the gloom to take their places: a half a dozen or so shady individuals who looked like they should have been manning a Baader-Meinhof Group terrorist cell, or else researching the growth of unusual moulds in an underground room somewhere.
I've seen Morphogenesis and its various members in different combinations a few times since, though Mike was never invited to play with them again, and I own a couple of CDs and a vinyl copy of their 1989 debut Prochronisms.

 Morphogenesis
Morphogenesis is the creation of form during development.
Thus, the two main groups of cells in the embryo are involved in numerous cellular processes that contribute to the morphogenesis of the organism.
Therefore the rearrangement of tissues during morphogenesis depends not only on the type of molecules that are expressed on their surface, but also the amount of these molecules present on their surface.

 Math Models Morphogenesis and Mitosis.
The morphogenesis checkpoint relies on antagonism between the Swe1 kinase, which inhibits entry into mitosis, and the active form of the Cdc28—Clb2 cyclin complex, which promotes it.
The morphogenesis checkpoint seems to raise the size threshold for progression of the cell cycle.
The model predicts that once that threshold is passed in the absence of bud formation, the mitotic cycle should continue unchecked, and the next cycle should be faster.

 Interview with Morphogenesis
Like other improvised music, Morphogenesis' creations have as much potential for going wrong as going right - this element of the unknown, of risk, is one of the attractions for the musicians, as well as for an audience who are willing to see the process as being as important as the results.
I wasn't in Morphogenesis at the beginning but I was starting to experiment with prepared and modified instruments.
After Morphogenesis had been going for about a year we started doing sessions at my house, because I had a lot of recording equipment, so it seemed like a good idea to use my place as a recording studio.

Morphogenesis may be radical by the realization of inventions or entirely new ideas about institutions or technologies, or it may be gradual by elaborating (refining and adding on to) existing structures (see growth, development, organisation, morphostasis).
