A cell that contains a nucleus and membrane bound organelles
Domain of unicellular prokaryotes that have cell walls that do not contain peptidoglycan
Domain of unicellular prokaryotes that have cell walls containing peptidoglycan, (microbiology) single-celled or noncellular spherical or spiral or rod-shaped organisms lacking chlorophyll that reproduce by fission
Prokaryotes are divided into what two domains?
Domain of all organisms whose cells have nuclei, including protists, plants, fungi, and animals
An informal term applied to any eukaryote that is not a plant, animal, or fungus. Most protists are unicellular, though some are colonial or multicellular.
