Terrestrial Origins and Evolution
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is composed of a chain of nucleic acids. It is
similar to DNA, but RNA is typically present in cells as a single
strand. RNA is most famous for its role in translating genetic
information from DNA so that cells can use the information to make
proteins.
