Learn the amino acids

During my bachelor's I had to learn all amino acids and their properties, as learning these bored me quickly I started writing a program which helps you learning the amino acids and their properties.

First you will see the table with all amino acids, hovering over an amino acid will show the corresponding structural formula. The actual test starts with easy questions, and learns what information you learned already. If you do well your level will increase which results in more difficult questions. The types of questions include: 3 letter codes (both ways), 1 letter codes (both ways), sizes, hydrophobicity states, and structural formulas. Enjoy learning the amino acids! Take the test
