Does bacteria have genetic information?

The genetic information of a bacterium is found in a DNA loop of the cytoplasm. Bacterium is a single-celled organism, and it is classified according to its shape, such as spherical or spiral.

Does a bacteria cell have a loop of DNA?

Bacteria have circular chromosomes of DNA. Most bacteria have a single copy, but some may have two. They can also have plasmids, which are accessory molecules of DNA and are generally much smaller that the chromosome. Also, the singular is bacterium.

Where is DNA located in prokaryotic cell?

DNA is found in a, usually single, chromosome and in plasmids within the cytoplasm.

Where in a cell are prokaryotic chromosomes found?

The region of the cytoplasm containing the DNA is called the nucleoid. The term "nucleus" is not appropriate, as there is no nuclear membrane.In bacteria there is a single chromosome, except in the interval between DNA replication and cell division. The chromosome is called circular, meaning that there are no free ends; the DNA molecule is in a loop.

Where iS the DNA in bacteria found if there is no nucleus?

It is located in the cytoplasm.

What are the structers that contain the DNA of each cell?

Generally, the DNA is contained in the nucleus of what are called eukaryotic cells, i.e.cells which have a membrane bound nucleus. In prokaryotic cells, cells which do not have a membrane bound nucleus the DNA is found in the nucleoid region as a single loop of DNA. However, DNA is also found in the energy producing organelles called mitochondria.

Are the physical structures of DNA and protein found in the nucleus?

In an animal or plant cell, DNA is found in the nucleus, inside chromosomes. In a bacteria cell, DNA is not in the nucleus because there is no nucleus in a bacteria cell I hope this helps:)
