In science:

Since 1979 , glycine has been investigated in interstellar medium involving controversy [71, 49]. The detection of interstellar glycine was proposed in several interstellar clouds including the Orion KL , followed by different perspectives .
Recent Progress in Chirality Research Using Circularly Polarized Light
In 2009, the structures of the products and their formation pathways were investigated using deuterium-labeling experiments, indicating the initial photochemical cleavages of C-H and N-H bonds, for glycine [121].
Recent Progress in Chirality Research Using Circularly Polarized Light
H2NCH2CN), which is an amino acid precursor to the amino acid glycine, is more stable than amino acid against UV photolysis [125].
Recent Progress in Chirality Research Using Circularly Polarized Light
If the residue is not reduced to a hydrogen atom (such as glycine), the alpha-carbon atom Cα is asymmetric.

Protein folding and heteropolymers
N H2 − CαH − CH2 − C − CH − N H − C6H4 − C OOH The smallest residue is glycine, which is just a single H atom, and thus non chiral, and the largest is tryptophan, which contains ten heavy (non hydrogen) atoms.
Protein folding and heteropolymers
In a Gly-Gly -Gly tripeptide (Fig. 1a), the central glycine unit can be expected to display a shake spectrum which is similar to that of a residue within a longer polypeptide chain.
Shake-up and shake-off excitations with associated electron losses in X-ray studies of proteins
The same molecule was used without swap gates for another three-qubit Deutsch-Jozsa experiment [KLL00]. A partial (particularly simple) implementation of the five-qubit Deutsch-Jozsa alg orithm was carried out using one 1H, 15N and 19F nucleus and two 13C nuclei in a molecule derived from glycine [MFM+00].
