What are DNA and RNA?

Both DNA and RNA carry genetic information, but there are a few differences between the two. DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid, RNA for ribonucleic acid. DNA is used to transfer the genetic code from the cell nucleus to the ribosome that makes proteins. Its function is the long-term storage of genetic information and the transmission of this information to other cells and new organisms. (Sources: thoughtco.com )
