Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The developmental process pertaining to the formation and shaping of the optic vesicle. This process begins with the specific processes that contribute to the appearance of the vesicle and ends when the vesicle has evaginated. The optic vesicle is the evagination of neurectoderm that precedes formation of the optic cup. (Gene Ontology, GO_0003404)
