    DAT only covers the scope of what a person who has only taken a year of general bio "should know"

    In other words NO!!! :)

    Just know glycine is only optically inactive. Also know all natural AA are L and all natural sugars are D. Also know AA's exist as Zwitterions at their isoelectric point.
