Contrast the location of genetic material in bacterial cells to its location in plant and animal cells

(1) Answers

In animal and plant cells genetic information if contained within a nucleus, in bacterial cells there is no nucleus and so the genetic information is found within the cytoplasm of the cell but is not 'contained' in a more specific area. A small amount of DNA in the bacterial cell may be contained in an area of the bacteria called a plasmid, however not all bacterial cells have a plasmid.
