Prokaryotic cells are single cell that do not possess any nucleus [1]. The cells are mostly simple compared to the eukaryotic alternatives. The DNA is just free within the cell complimented by plasmids that can add functions to the cell, this making it commonly used for gene amplification. Besides, the DNA of a Prokaryotic cell is circular compared to Eukaryotic cells which are linear. They also do not have membrane bound organelles[2]. And example of prokaryotes are Bacteria and Archaea [3]
