The part in which DNA will be found in a Eukaryotic Cell

On this page we will discuss the part in which DNA will be found within a Eukaryotic cell.

In prokaryotic cells, the DNA is mostly located in a central part of the cell called the nucleoid, or the nucleus, which is not enclosed in a nuclear membrane. Most of the genetic material in most prokaryotes takes the form of a single circular DNA molecule, or chromosome (source: Ancestry).

Did you now? An important property of DNA is that it can replicate, or make copies of itself. Each strand of DNA in the double helix can serve as a pattern for duplicating the sequence of bases. This is critical when cells divide because each new cell needs to have an exact copy of the DNA present in the old cell.
