User: wich characteristic do scientis first consider when classifying cells as wither eukaryotic or prokaryotic

Weegy: Features of Prokaryotes Pro = “before”, karyon = “nucleus” Prokaryotes, the first living organisms to evolve, are primarily distinguished by the fact that they lack a membrane-bound nucleus. [ In fact, the only membrane in prokaryotic cells is the plasma membrane- the outer boundary of the cell itself. Their genetic material is naked within the cytoplasm, ribosomes their only type of organelle. Features of Eukaryotes Eu = “true”, karyon = “nucleus” The most noticeable feature that differentiates these more complex cells from prokaryotes is the presence of a nucleus, a double membrane-bound control center separating the genetic material, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), from the rest of the cell.
