  • Cells
    • Eukaryotic
      • Complex cells and include all animal and plant cells
      • Larger cells
      • DNA is linear
      • Nucleus is present - with DNA inside
      • No cell wall (in animals), cellulose (In plants) or chitin cell wall (in fungi)
      • An example of a eukaryotic cell is the Human liver cell
      • Few organelles, mitochondria present
      • Large ribosomes
    • Prokatyotic
      • Smaller and simpler cells
      • Extremely small
      • DNA is circular
      • No nucleus - DNA free in cytoplasm
      • Cell wall made up of a polysaccharide but not cellulose or chitin
      • few organelles no mitocondria
      • smaller ribsosomes
      • An example of a Prokaryotic cell is the E. coli bacterium
