DNA is DNA is DNA. It doesn't differ, except for how it is arranged.


DNA in eukaryotic cells is usually linear (ie. Chromosome), while DNA in prokaryotic cells is usually circular (one end gets connect to the other end).

However, the phosphodiester backbone and purine/pyrimidine bases are the same.
