Bacterial cell structure. Computer artwork showing the cell structure and components (organelles) of a typical rod-shaped bacteria (bacillus). Not all bacteria have a flagellum (long, tail-like). Plasmids (large circles) are rings of DNA (deoxribonucleic acid) that are separate from the chromosomal DNA used for reproduction. They are transferable genetic elements, capable of autonomous replication within a suitable host.
