Studying bacteria cell will be easier with the aid of a visual diagram. In this site, we will share to you a set of printable bacteria cell diagram that you can directly save and print for your own use. A brief discussion about the structure of bacteria will also be added in the latter part after the bacteria diagrams. Check out the diagrams in the following pictures.
Knowing the structure and diagram of the bacteria cell will help you to draw the structure and diagram of bacteria. A bacterial cell remains surrounded by an outer layer or cell envelope, which consists of a rigid cell wall and beneath it a cytoplasmic membrane or plasma membrane. The cell envelope encloses the protoplasm, made up of the cytoplasm, cytoplasmic inclusions (such as ribosomes, mesosomes, fat globules, inclusion bodies, vacuoles) and the nuclear material.
The cytoplasm, or protoplasm, of bacterial cells is where the functions for cell growth, metabolism, and replication are carried out. Flagella are hair-like structures that provide a means of locomotion for those bacteria that have them. They can be found at either or both ends of a bacterium or all over its surface. Meanwhile, ribosomes are microscopic “factories” found in all cells, including bacteria. The following bacteria diagram is unlabelled so try to label it by yourself.
