Structure of prokaryotic cells & viruses

  • outline key structural features of typical prokaryotic cells as seen in a typical bacterium (including: unicellular, 1-5μm diameter, peptidoglycan cell walls, lack of organelles surrounded by double membranes, naked circular DNA, 70S ribosomes)
  • compare and contrast the structure of typical prokaryotic cells with typical eukaryotic cells (reference to mesosomes should not be included)
  • outline the key features of viruses as non-cellular structures (limited to protein coat and DNA/RNA)
