A bacterium (plural: bacteria) is an organism belonging to the domain bacteria (in the three domain scheme). Traditionally classified as one of the five kingdoms, bacteria are microscopic, single-celled and their cell structure is relatively simple. Since they lack the nucleus and organelles of the more complex cells called "eukaryotes", bacteria are considered to be "prokaryotes".
