I sometimes use anagrams in remembering. Try to make funny or easily pictured anagrams, like "Insect-y" for the amino acid Cysteine, "Emotion-I" for Metionine, "Raining" for Arginine. usually they don't match exactly. I also use the first letter of each member and put them into a easy to picture word, like "KIK-AID-KMEK" for the protein families involved in Glycolysis or "GLAMVIP" for the aliphatic aminoacids (Glycine, Leucine, Alanine, Metionine, Valine, Isoleucine and Proline). Other times I make whole words from the first letter of each member of the list and put them into a funny or tragic sentence. When I do the latter I try to make the connection of the words more obvious to the original member of the list. Like involving as many common letters as possible.
