WKP

Definition : Organogenesis is the phase of embryonic development that starts at the end of gastrulation and continues until birth. During organogenesis, the three germ layers formed from gastrulation: the ectoderm , endoderm , and mesoderm form the internal organs of the organism.

By organs

- cardiac organogenesis (cardiogenesis)
- renal organogenesis (nephrogenesis)
- splenic organogenesis (splenogenesis)
- pancreatic organogenesis (pacreatogenesis)
- hepatic organogenesis (hepatogenesis)
- mammary organogenesis (mammogenesis)
- pulmonary organogenesis (pneumogenesis)
