Abstract:

Bacteria seem to be very simple cells, having neither a nucleus nor internal organelles as in animal or plant cells, but they actually have a highly structured internal organization. Their shape is very precise and their content is well organized. Each protein or group of proteins has its specific location, from one generation to the next.
