What is the importance of ligands and in what kind of examples will they appear?

Ligands are important to us because of their ubiquity in biological molecules, as they are responsible for a great number of chemical and biological reactions. They bind to transition metals via coordinate bonding and make accessible the continued bonding of those molecules so that these aforementioned biological functions can occur.

Will we have to know the differences between ligands? Like in class Dr. Lavelle drew cis-platinum and trans-platinum. Do we have to know keywords like cis and trans in order to draw the right version?
