    • Dividing into two identical Daughter Cells
      • Septum forms
        • Cytoplasm divides around each chromosomes
    • Some produce dormant forms called SPORES
  • Site of synthesis process
    • Cytoplasm
  • Movement - Not every bacteria has one
    • Plagella
      • Chromosomes
        • Carries the heredity info of cell
        • Pili & Fimbrae
