Accession
GO:0030098
Name
lymphocyte differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
lymphocyte cell differentiation, lymphocytic blood cell differentiation, lymphocyte development
Alternate IDs
GO:0046650
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized precursor cell acquires specialized features of a lymphocyte. A lymphocyte is a leukocyte commonly found in the blood and lymph that has the characteristics of a large nucleus, a neutral staining cytoplasm, and prominent heterochromatin.

Comment
Note that immunologists typically use the word 'development' to refer to cells of B or T cell lineages undergoing the process that GO describes as 'cell differentiation'.
