About This Quiz & Worksheet

Test your understanding of the structure and organization of the bacteria's genome with this quiz and worksheet combo. You will be asked to define obligate symbiotic bacteria, prokaryotic and nucleoid, and to explain how the genome fits into the bacterial cell.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

Use this quiz to check your ability to:

  • Define obligate symbiotic bacteria
  • Explain how bacteria fits DNA into the cell
  • Define prokaryotic
  • Identify the nucleoid

Skills Practiced

This assessment will test the following skills:

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of supercoiling
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define obligate symbiotic bacteria, genome, prokaryotic, and nucleoid
  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most significant information from the related biology lesson
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the structure of DNA in bacteria
