Younes Rashad
\ue000Bacteria is a single-celled organism which can
only be seen through microscope.
\ue000 Bacteria comes in different shapes and the size
of bacteria is measured in micro-meter (which is
a millionth part of a meter).
\ue000Bacteria are found everywhere and in all type
of environments.
Prokaryotic (no membrane-enclosed nucleus)
No mitochondria or chloroplasts
A single chromosome
Have a rigid cell wall made ofpeptidoglycan.

Many bacteria form a singlespo re when their food
supply runs low. Spores are so resistant to adverse
conditions of dryness and temperature that they may
remain viable even after 50 years of dormancy.
