We had to memorize the standard amino acids for Biochemistry earlier this spring, so I learned the structures by illustrating them.
Pictured above is tryptophan. You can find the rest of the set here.
I’d like to make some adjustments— I think switching the blue and yellow will better highlight the variable side groups— but I like it! The illustration process was a fun way to learn about connectivity and the substitutions needed to go from one amino acid to the next.
It was also an efficient process because it integrated different learning styles that work for me in fairly short time— and the result was learning, not just memorization.
