How is RNA different to DNA?

There are a few key points you should remember. RNA has a ribose sugar instead of a deoxyribose sugar, RNA also has uracil instead of thymine, so uracil binds to adenine. The base pairings in RNA are G-C, A-U. In addition, RNA is usually single stranded, whilst DNA is double stranded and wound in a double helix.
