Prokaryotic cells have DNA loose in the cytoplasm and eukaryotic cells have the DNA surrounded by a nucleus.

There are a number of organelles present in eukaryotic cells. These organelles work together to help the cell carry out three main jobs:

  • to make energy
  • to make proteins
  • to make more cells
