published by the Rowland Institute at Harvard
This Rowland Institute at Harvard webpage provides a brief description of right-and left-handed (chiral) organic molecules and how their handedness is critical to their chemistry in living systems (as it is critical for some drugs as well). A diagram shows the two mirror-image forms of an amino acid.
