Bacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms. 

Bacterial cells are simpler than plant and animal cells: bacterial cells don't have a 'true' nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplasts or a vacuole.

Bacterial cells:

  • May have a Flagellum 
  • Will have a Cell Wall To maintain their shape and stop the bacterium from absorbing water and bursting
  • Will have bacterial DNA for cell replication and to control the cell's activities.
