what is membrane biogenesis?

Bio- membrane synthesis is also called membrane biogenesis.
Membrane biogenesis is a process in which living cell membrane is formed from the proteins and lipids synthesised within the cells.

 Membrane biogenesis is a process in which living cell membrane is formed from the proteins and lipids synthesised within the Rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and Smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) of the cell respectively.

some of the proteins and lipids synthesized by the ER helps in membrane building. this is called membrane biogenesis.

Formation of biological membranes.
For this there should be a lipid synthesis in the agranular reticulum and protein biosynthesis in the rough surfaced endoplasmic reticulum. These two major components are arrayed giving rise to the membrane. With respect to the formation of plasma membrane, Golgi complex also comes into play as it have to produce the overcoat.In other words, it has to add carbohydrate moiety to the protein already formed in the RER.
