      • No Nucleus
      • Free floating DNA
      • Some have Undulipodia
    • All cells have organelles, with diffferent purposes.
      • Chloroplasts convert energy from light into glucose
      • Mitochondria are in plant and animal cells, and are the main site of respiration
      • The Nucleus stores DNA and genetic information. Prokaryotes have no Nucleus
      • The cell wall in plant cells gives the cells structure and prevents them from bursting
