Comparisons of DNA and RNA is a part of the VCE Biology area of study ‘How do Cellular Processes Work?’ and subtopic ‘Nucleic Acids and Proteins’. RNA is single stranded while DNA is double stranded, however they both have a phosphate backbone. They both share the feature of four nitrogenous bases, however RNA has uracil while DNA has thymine. DNA is more structurally stable than RNA. This allows RNA to be a little more flexible. Watch these videos to learn more similarities and differences!
