What are some similarities between RNA and DNA?

Answer

Some of the similarities between DNA and RNA are the double helix structure which comprises them. They both refer to the information and instructions for producing proteins and cell structures which comprise our bodies. In easier terms, in a computer, DNA acts as the hard drive while RNA acts as the processor. Instructions are executed through the RNA to process the DNA code in order to produce cells and proteins that are used for development.
