Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) -

Made up of nucleotides consisting of pentose sugar which is \beta-D-2- deoxyribose, Phosphoric acid and bases (Adenine , Guanine , cytosine and thymine)

-

 

 and

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) -

Made up of nucleotides consisting of pentose sugar which is \beta-D-ribose, Phosphoric acid and bases (Adenine , Guanine , cytosine and uracil)
