found in bacteria


found in protists, fungi, plants and animals

-Much larger
-Much more complex
-Mostly multicellular but can be unicellular (fungi and protists)
-Contain a true nucleus to house the genetic material (DNA)
-Linear DNA packaged into chromatin found inside the nucleus
-Contains specialized structures in the cytoplasm called organelles to carry out various functions
-Not all have a cell wall

What makes a Eukaryotic cell different?

-Much smaller
-Less complex
unicellular, but can make multicellular groups/clusters
-No true nucleus
-Circular DNA that is found in the cytoplasm
-No organelles found in the cytoplasm
-Surrounded by a cell wall
