cell fate specification Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process involved in the specification of cell identity. Once specification has taken place, a cell will be committed to differentiate down a specific pathway if left in its normal environment. (Gene Ontology, GO_0001708)
