Scope note: The developmental stage that follows BLASTULA or BLASTOCYST. It is characterized by the morphogenetic cell movements including invagination, ingression, and involution. Gastrulation begins with the formation of the PRIMITIVE STREAK, and ends with the formation of three GERM LAYERS, the body plan of the mature organism.

Gastrula - Preferred
Concept UI M0009045
Scope note The developmental stage that follows BLASTULA or BLASTOCYST. It is characterized by the morphogenetic cell movements including invagination, ingression, and involution. Gastrulation begins with the formation of the PRIMITIVE STREAK, and ends with the formation of three GERM LAYERS, the body plan of the mature organism.
Preferred term Gastrula
Entry term(s) Gastrulas
Blastopore - Narrower
Concept UI M0009044
Scope note The opening of the archenteron, central cavity of gastrula, which is formed by invagination of the BLASTULA or BLASTOCYST. Archenteron gives rise to the alimentary canal of the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.
Preferred term Blastopore
