DNA is abbreviated as Deoxyribonucleic Acid. DNA is very important for living organisms because it contains genetic information. DNA is considered as building block of life and because of DNA the heredity material is transferred from one generation to the other generation. The information that DNA contains is very important for the development of organisms. It is because of genetic instructions that we are functioning in a specific manner. About 99% of DNA is same in all living beings and only 1% is different. Because of this 1% we are different from each other.

DNA stands fro Deoxyribonucleic acid. It contains all the genetic instructions which are used in development and the functioning of all living organisms and even some viruses.

DNA is important because they store the information for a long term. This information is important because it has instructions that help in construction of other components of cells such as proteins and RNA.

Thus, the DNA of a living being determines what the organism will inherit from his parents.
