That looks like a hellton of work.

I found out that I got one of them wrong, homocysteine is not an aminoacid. Cysteine is though.

I'm too lazy to remove homocysteine so i'll just note it as "not an aminoacid".

I was also missing 3 it seems, I'll correct all these things now.

FOr the refernce, and maybe confused people.

Homocysteine is not an aminoacid.
Selenocysteïne is usually omitted from the standard aminoacids (it's considered the 21st).

N-formalmethionine is only used by bacteria.
Pyrrolysine Are only used by methanogen-bacteria and archea.
Neither are aminoacids, but they're considered proteinogenic aminoacids.

I hope this isn't too confusing.
Perhaps I should make a version of this ASCIImation with only the standard 20.

I made a separate version that only includes the standard 20 aminoacids, sorry for all the possible confusion.

You majoring in biology?

Well, in the process to at least, still in my first year. This is just a really good way of memorising them, as I need to do that.
