DAG for GO:0009826id: GO:0009826

name: unidimensional cell growth
namespace: biological_process
def: "The process in which a cell irreversibly increases in size in one [spatial] dimension or along one axis, resulting in the morphogenesis of the cell." [ISBN:0943088399]
comment: Unidimensional cell growth refers to a change in both cell size and cell shape. For cell shape changes where cell size is not affected, consider instead the term 'regulation of cell shape ; GO:0008360' and its children.
