The formation of bone or of a bony substance, or the conversion of fibrous tissue or of cartilage into bone or a bony substance. Source: PMID:17572649, GOC:mtg_mpo
Comment
Note that this term does not have a 'developmental process' parent because ossification isn't necessarily developmental, can also occur as part of bone remodeling. Instead use 'ossification involved in bone maturation ; GO:0043931'.
