Term Information [More information on detection of visible light]

Accession
GO:0009584
Name
detection of visible light
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
perception of visible light
Definition
The series of events in which a visible light stimulus is received by a cell and converted into a molecular signal. A visible light stimulus is electromagnetic radiation that can be perceived visually by an organism; for organisms lacking a visual system, this can be defined as light with a wavelength within the range 380 to 780 nm.
