Eukaryotes and prokaryotes are two cellular structures. Animals, such as humans, are eukaryotic as they are composed of more than one call. These cells contain a nucleus, which holds the genetic information and chromosomes of the eukaryotes. Eukaryotic chromosomes are diploids, with some haploid as well. The chromosomes are in a helix shape.
Prokaryotes contain their genetic information in a nucleoid. These chromosomes are circular in shape. They have extrachromasmoal plasmoids. Contain very little repetitive DNA. The prokaryotic DNA can interact with the cytoplasm
