Bacteria Structure Warm Up 1

Welcome to the 21st Century human anatomy and physiology electronic classroom. Bacterial cells do not have membrane-bound organelles that contain such structures as ribosomes, DNA, and organic compounds. Remember, this warm up permits an unlimited number of attempts to help improve your learning and test-taking skills. As a bonus, each attempt randomly generates questions and answers.
