Membrane biogenesis is a scientific term used in the fields of molecular and cell biology. It describes a process that takes place inside a cell, in which some proteins and lipids are active in building the cell membrane. A membrane is the thin layer of tissues made up of cells that protect a surface and connect the concerned mass of cells with other parts of the body of all living things, including humans, other animals, and plants. Research findings on membrane biogenesis are most helpful in agricultural industries and the genetic engineering of plants and crops.
Genesis means creation. As the name suggests, membrane biogenesis means formation of cell membrane using biological materials like proteins, phospholipds etc. from the cell.
