    Prokaryotic cells are found in bacteria. DNA is found directly in the cytoplasm in this type of cell.

    Eukaryotic cells are more complex cells, by their subdivision with the help of organelles. In these cells, DNA is isolated in the nucleus. Animal and plant cells are eukaryotic cells.

    Hope that answers your question!
