The upcoming discussion will update you about the differences between Bacteria and Cyanobacteria.
Difference # Bacteria:
1. The cells are comparatively smaller.
2. The cell wall is 1—2 layered.
3. Plasmodesmata and pores do not occur in cell wall.
4. They exhibit lesser structural elaboration.
5. Bacteria are both autotrophic and heterotrophic.
6. Autotrophic bacteria possess bacteriochlorophyll.
7. Photosynthesis is an-oxygenic.
8. Photoautotrophic bacteria do not contain phycobilins.
9. Flagella may be present.
10. Carbohydrate reserve food is glycogen.
Difference # Cyanobacteria:
1. The cells are comparatively larger.
2. The cell wall is four layered.
3. They are often present.
4. They show higher degree of morphological complexity as well as structural elaboration.
5. Cyanobacteria are generally autotrophic.
6. Cyanobacteria contain chlorophyll a as found in eukaryotic autotrophs.
7. Photosynthesis its oxygenic.
8. They possess accessory water soluble photosynthetic pigments known as phycobilins.
9. Flagella are absent.
10. Carbohydrate reserve food is a special starch known as cyanophycean starch.
