Prokaryotic is the one, main word that describes the bacteria’s family.  A prokaryotic cell has the following characteristics: 1

  • No nuclear membrane
  • No mitochondria
  • Plasmids
  • Ribosomes

In fact, the eukaryotic cells have just about everything a procaryote doesn’t, this is what makes bacteria and cells different and completely set apart in the micro world.

Bacteria are pretty amazing in their designs and shapes. Some bacteria are shaped like squares, rectangles, circles and many other unique figures. Overall, they are pretty amazing!



More, in-depth study will be sent out on these characteristics.
