What is DNA?

Deoxyribonucleic Acid is a self replicating material present in all living organisms.

What does DNA do?

DNA contains the instructions needed for an organism to develop, survive and reproduce. To carry out these functions, DNA sequences must be converted into messages that can be used to produce proteins, which are the complex molecules that do most of the work in our bodies.

A. Heredity:DNA actually controls the production of the proteins that determine all of the traits passed on from parents to their offspring.
B. Replication:DNA replication is the process of producing two identical replicas from one original DNA molecule.
C. Protein Production: DNA contains the "blueprint" to build proteins.

What is RNA?

Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule. It is implicated in a varied sort of biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes.Types of RNA: mRNA, rRNA, tRNA

What does RNA do?

RNA fits through the pores of the nuclear membrane allowing it to transport all of the information to the specific parts.
