DNA and RNA are the polymers

Dna is a Nucleic acid, it forms the rubble helix shape.The double helix shape is like a twisty ladder. The base pairs are the rungs. DNA hold all of genetic codes. Without nucleic acid you would even be you!

Nucleotides are the monomers in Nucleic acid.

The 5 nucleotides are uracil, cytosine, thymine, adenine, and guanine.
