Cell morphology



The morphology of cell generally through microscopy


Cell morphology is essential in identifying the shape, structure, form, and size of cells. In bacteriology, for instance, cell morphology pertains to the shape of bacteria if cocci, bacilli, spiral, etc. and the size of bacteria. Thus, determining cell morphology is essential in bacterial taxonomy.
