  • Nucleus

    ​A cell organelle found in eukaryotic cells that houses the DNA and controls activity within the cell.

  • DNA

    ​DNA stores an organism’s genetic information.

  • Nuclear Envelope

    A double membrane that surrounds the nucleus.

  • Nucleolus

    A structure found within the nucleus that produces subunits of ribosomes.

  • Chromatin

    ​A form of uncondensed DNA found within the nucleus of the cell.
