RNA and DNA are both nucleic acid macromolecules that are comprised of a set of monomers known as nucleotides. They also both contain purines and pyrimidines as their bases and contain pentose sugars as their backbones. More »

The subunits of DNA and RNA are nucleotides. A nucleotide is made up of a phosphate group bonded to a sugar, which is then bound to a nitrogenous base. Both DNA and RNA consist of four types of nitrogenous bases. More »
