# What is the relationship between nucleic acids and DNA?

Nucleic acids are a complex organic substance found in the nucleus of the body, which stores genetic information, usually in the form of $\text{DNA}$ or $\text{RNA}$. They each thousands of $5$-carbon sugars, phosphate $\left(P {O}_{4}^{3 -}\right)$ groups, and nitrogenous bases (adenine, guanine, thymine, cytosine, or uracil).
And so, $\text{DNA}$ is considered to be a type of nucleic acid.
