Simplified version of the steroid synthesis pathway with the intermediates isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP), dimethylallyl pyrophosphate (DMAPP), geranyl pyrophosphate (GPP) and squalene shown. Some intermediates are omitted.

Steroidogenesis is the process of steroid production in living organisms. The pathways of steroidogenesis can differ from organism to organism, but the pathways of human steroidogenesis are shown below.
