I have not been able to find any more in depth websites/answers for this question. DNA is considered to be a relatively stable molecule. What is it that gives the molecule its stability when the hydrogen bonds between the nitrogen bases are so easily broken?

    1) as organic bonds go, the hydrogen bond is one of the strongest.
    2) The structure of DNA itself supports the integrity of the bond from each side.
    3) The DNA has a double key, and can be repaired.
