In this video we share a method of remembering the structures of the 20 commonly occurring amino acids through tricks involving their single-letter abbreviations. We do not cover any amino acid chemistry in this video (like chemical properties), just the structures. We hope you find it helpful, and if you find any errors or have any suggestions for improvement, please let us know!
