    The primary function of DNA is to store and transmit genetic information. To accomplish this function DNA must have two properties. It must be chemically stable so as to reduce the possibility of damage. DNA must also be capable of copying the information it contains. The two-stranded structure of DNA gives it both of these properties. The nucleotide sequence contains the information found in DNA. The nucleotides connect the two strands through hydrogen bonds. Because each nucleotide has a unique complimentary nucleotide, each strand contains all the information required to synthesize a new DNA molecule. The double stranded structure also makes the molecule more stable.

    THESE ALL ARE HYPOTHETICAL SINCE WE DO NOT KNOW OR HAVE A MODEL OF ANOTHER LIFE-FORM OUTSIDE OF THE DNA/RNA STRUCTURE ALPHA HELIX STRUCTURE
