User: What is the primary function of DNA?

Weegy: Most simply, DNA is the control center for everything that goes on in the cell, like a blueprint with the plans for all the steps that must happen for everything to function correctly. [ It is what people refer to when they talk about "genes." DNA stands for deoxyribose nucleic acid and it is made of subunits called nucleotides. It holds all the codes that are used for making proteins, and proteins are important for cells to grow and function normally. ]
