Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process in which the developmental fate of a cell becomes restricted such that it will develop into an eye photoreceptor cell. A photoreceptor cell is a cell that responds to incident electromagnetic radiation. Different classes of photoreceptor have different spectral sensitivities and express different photosensitive pigments. (Gene Ontology, GO_0042706)
