    what is a binary fission
    the process of cell division in prokaryotes.

    1. DNA replicates and both copies are attached to the cell membrane.
    2. Plasmids also replicates
    3. New cell membrane forms between the 2 DNA molecules and pinches inwards
    4. Then the cell wall grows and will divide the cytoplasm into 2, and the original prokaryote into 2 daughter prokaryotes with identical DNA
