Cells fall into one of two broad categories: prokaryotic and eukaryotic. Here are some differences between them listed below.
|Most prokaryotes are unicellular.||Most eukaryotes are multicellular.|
|The nucleus is poorly defined due to the absence of a nuclear membrane.||The nucleus is well-defined and is surrounded by a nuclear membrane.|
|Nucleolus is absent||Nucleolus is present.|
|Cell organelles such as plastids, mitochondria, Golgi bodies, etc., are absent.||Cell organelles such as plastids, mitochondria, Golgi bodies, etc., are present.|
|Bacteria and blue-green algae are prokaryotic cells.||Fungi, plant, and animal cells are eukaryotic cells.|
