Two Types of Cells Prokaryotic Cell vs. Eukaryotic Cells
Prokaryotic Cells Bacteria and archaea are prokaryotic cells. They are the smallest forms of life that can live independently. Do not have a nucleus. Genetic material (DNA) is bunched up in the cytoplasm. Do not have membrane-covered organelles. Have ribosomes which make proteins.
Eukaryotic Cells Animals, plants, fungi, and protists are made up of eukaryotic cells. More complex than prokaryotic cells. Have a nucleus. The nucleus contains the genetic material (DNA). Have membrane-covered organelles.
