Are both sides of the DNA helix used for the same amino acid?

Asked by Zyx (4152points) October 24th, 2010

I’ve seen hundreds of representations in which the sides of the DNA helix mirror eachother. Now I’m wondering whether these sides function together or seperately or perhaps just one of them is copied into RNA. What is the deal?
