Spermatogenesis - Preferred
Concept UI M0020281
Scope note The process of germ cell development in the male from the primordial germ cells, through SPERMATOGONIA; SPERMATOCYTES; SPERMATIDS; to the mature haploid SPERMATOZOA.
Preferred term Spermatogenesis
Spermiogenesis - Narrower
Concept UI M0020283
Scope note The process of male germ cell development in which the haploid SPERMATIDS give rise to SPERMATOZOA by metamorphosis.
Preferred term Spermiogenesis
Spermatocytogenesis - Narrower
Concept UI M0020282
Scope note The process of male germ cell development in which the euploid SPERMATOGONIA give rise to SPERMATOCYTES and then the haploid SPERMATIDS by MITOSIS and MEIOSIS.
Preferred term Spermatocytogenesis
