Delivering an app on a mobile platform to enable collaboration in open drug discovery

What is it about?

The Open Drug Discovery Teams (ODDT) project provides a mobile app primarily intended as a research topic aggregator of open science data collected from the internet. It can facilitate interdisciplinary teamwork delivering access to information that is highly relevant and focused on their topic areas of interest. Research topics include areas of chemistry and rare and neglected diseases.

Why is it important?

The ODDT project uses a free mobile app as user entry point. The app has a magazine-like interface and connects to hosted chemistry-related data as well as value added services. The project is open to participation from anyone and provides the ability for users to make annotations thereby contributing to the collective value of the data to the engaged community. Much of the content is derived from public sources.
