Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the ectoderm over time, from its formation to the mature structure. In animal embryos, the ectoderm is the outer germ layer of the embryo, formed during gastrulation. (Gene Ontology, GO_0007398)
