DNA or deoxyribose nucleic acid is the unit of heredity that almost all organisms on earth have and use as a carrier of genetic information. DNA forms DNA forms an alpha helix structure with bae pairing of the purine bases adenine and guanine with their complementary pyrimidine bases thymine and cytosine. DNA is transcribed into RNA which is then translated into proteins which can then perform an array of important functions in living organisms.
