Does bacteria have DNA or a nucleus?

Bacteria, which are prokaryotic organisms, have DNA but no nucleus.


In prokaryotic organisms DNA is found were?

No membranous organelles exist in prokaryotes like the nucleus, so DNA occupies a localized region in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells which is known as the nucleoid (nucleus-like).
