Differences between nucleus and nucleoid:
|Nucleus is larger in size.||Nucleoid is comparatively smaller in size.|
|It is covered by a double membrane envelope||A covering membrane is absent. It lies free in the cytoplasm.|
|Nucleolus is present in it.||Nucleolus is absent in it.|
|Its DNA content is equal to two or several DNA molecules.||Its DNA content is equal to a single DNA molecule.|
|Its DNA is associated with histone proteins to form chromatin.||In it histones are absent. DNA of a nucleoid is often naked.|
