DNA metabolic process

id: GO:0006259
name: DNA metabolic process
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Any cellular metabolic process involving deoxyribonucleic acid. This is one of the two main types of nucleic acid, consisting of a long, unbranched macromolecule formed from one, or more commonly, two, strands of linked deoxyribonucleotides.
