What Is DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid,) is one of two of nucleic acid types. Another type of nucleic acid is RNA (ribonucleic acid,).
DNA is a genetic material in the cell of every living organism and most virus. It carries required information in protein synthesis and replication. Protein synthesis is the process in which cell build protein required by cell or virus for activities and growth . Replication is the process in which DNA copies itself and it will be bequeathed to each daughter cell or virus, and also gives information required in protein synthesis.
