Prokaryotic - no nuclei Cells are 1 - 10 micrometers Reproduction and Life Cycle Organism Examples Asexual Reproduction Binary fission Spores Budding Lactobacillus acidophilus Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria Stomach Bacteria Staphylococcus aureus Bacillus anthrax Clostridium tetani Streptococcus pyogenes strep throat tetanus staph infection anthrax disease lactic acid bacilli: rod-shaped cocci: spherical spirilla: curved walls (corkscrew) http://cdn.physorg.com/newman/gfx/news/2008/streptococcu.jpg http://img.medscape.com/article/705/512/705512-fig6.jpg http://textbookofbacteriology.net/B.anthracis1.jpeg http://www.thebioenergysite.com/articles/contents/bacteria.jpg http://www.vitalsigns-health.co.uk/Images/h_pylori.jpg http://cafescicolorado.org/images/Staph.jpg http://diverge.hunter.cuny.edu/~weigang/Images/11-14_ctetani.jpg Pictures from: http://www.ou.edu/class/pheidole/General%20Bacteria.jpg Lack organelles surrounded by membranes Biology: Dimensions of Life.

bacterial transformation: prokaryotes die and release their DNA nearby and living prokaryotes take it up and add to their own genomes most DNA in one, large circular chromosome flagella Genetic diversity www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/bacteria/bacteria.html
