Get yourself more knowledge about bacterial cell structure by taking a tour to these free and printable bacterial cell diagrams to give you more than just a peek about the structures of bacterial cell! We have five downloadable cell diagrams of bacteria to help you study deeper into the structures. Take a look at the first diagram we provided below.
Bacteria are prokaryotes, lacking well-defined nuclei and membrane-bound organelles, and with chromosomes composed of a single closed DNA circle. Bacteria have many shapes and sizes, from minute spheres, cylinders and spiral threads, to flagellated rods, and filamentous chains. You can see in the bacterial cell diagrams the structures of cell in bacteria. More bacteria diagrams are posted below.
Bacteria do not have a nucleus. They do have two types of DNA – plasmid and chromosomal. The chromosomal DNA carries most of the genetic information. Plasmid DNA forms small loops and carries extra information. Some bacteria have a flagellum – a whip like tail. This helps the bacteria to move itself along.
