Caption: Computer artwork of a typical bacterium. At centre in yellow is a long loop of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the genetic material of the bacterium. Surrounding the nucleoid are ribosomes (green spheres) that play a role in protein synthesis. The flagellae (purple strands, upper left) are used for locomotion and the pili (blue strands) are hair-like structures used for adherence to surfaces.
