Question Answer
What is DNA responsible for? It's the hereditary material responsible for passing on genetic information from cell to cell and generation to generation
What variety produce the immense amount of genetic diversity along living organisms? the variety in base sequences
Why is the DNA being stable an advantage for its function? It can pass information from generation to generation without change
As DNA's two separate strands are joined via hydrogen bonds, it means.. They can dissemble for DNA replicaiton and protein synthesis
DNA is an extremely large molecule allowing.. it to carry an immense amount of genetic information
How is the genetic material, to some extent, protected from being corrupted? It is within the helical cylinder of the deoxyribose-phosphate backbone
