Protists are eukaryotic creatures <you-carry-ah-tick>, meaning their DNA is enclosed in a nucleus inside the cell (unlike bacteria, which are prokaryotic <pro-carry-ah-tick> and have no nucleus to enclose their DNA.

Protists fall into four general subgroups: unicellular algae, protozoa, slime molds, and water molds.  http://www.microbeworld.org/types-of-microbes/protista
