DAG for GO:0034295id: GO:0034295

name: basidiospore formation
namespace: biological_process
def: "The process in which spores form outside a specialized end cell known as a basidium. Basidia are characteristic of the basidiomycete fungi (phylum Basidiomycota), and give rise to spores that each contain a haploid nucleus that is the product of meiosis. The spores are usually attached to the basidium by short spikes called sterigmata (singular: sterigma). In most basidiomycetes there are four sterigmata (and four spores) to a basidium." [GOC:di, GOC:ds, GOC:mah, GOC:mcc, http://www.gsbs.utmb.edu/microbook/ch073.htm, http://www.ilmyco.gen.chicago.il.us/Terms/basid133.html]
comment: Note that basidiospores and basidia are separate biological structures. The basidium is the structure that bear the basidiospores, but the development of the basidium is a different process than the formation of the basidiospores themselves. For this reason, GO:0034295 basidiospore formation and GO:0075313 basidium development are different terms and are not linked.
