There are two different types of nucleic acid polymerases.

  •  DNA-dependent DNA polymerases
  •  DNA-dependent RNA polymerases

The DNA-dependent DNA polymerases use a DNA template for synthesizing a new strand of DNA, whereas DNA-dependent RNA polymerases use a DNA template strand for synthesizing RNA.
