Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description Any process in an organism that results in the killing of cells of another organism, including in some cases the death of the other organism. Killing here refers to the induction of death in one cell by another cell, not cell-autonomous death due to internal or other environmental conditions. (Gene Ontology, GO_0031640)
