  • a typical bacterial cell
    • bacterial cells have many different shapes-some are round, some are rod-shaped and some are spiral - but they are all prokaryotic cells
    • in bacterial cells, the roles of mitochondria and chloroplasts are taken over by the cytoplasm
    • there may be one or more flagella, which are tail-like structures that move the bacterium
    • plasmids are present, which are loops of DNA that can be transferred from one cell to another
    • plasmids allow bacterial cells to move genes from one cell to another
