What is the stability of RNA vs. DNA?
RNA is inherently less stable than DNA due to its chemical structure. Additionally RNases are more prevalent in standard laboratory conditions than DNases. As even the slightest exposure to RNase can impact RNA stability, IDT has not performed rigorous long term stability studies for RNA.
