    eukaryoric genes are more complex in structure and genetic material than a prokaryotic gene.

    Eukaryotic genomes are generally larger (#10Mb -100,000Mb) than prokaryotic ones. Their DNA is held on linear chromosomes and a small circular mitochondrial chromosome. Genes have introns. There are many genome wide repeats. There are longer space between genes and a great number of non-coding sequences. The number of genes doesn't normally differ between strains of a species.
