DNA has a twins beached structure, its strands are antiparallel because they move in face to face direction.

Each DNA molecule contain two strands of nucleotides. Every strand contain sugar phosphate backbone, but the guidance of the sugar molecule is face to face in the 2 strands.

Both of the strands of DNA twins helix can grow in five to three direction, but they grow in face to face guidance, due to face to face guidance of the sugar phosphate molecule in them.

Unsimilar DNA is internally more reliable than similar structure.
