Upon receiving the news there would be an application I could install on my phone, which would not only give me access to Twitter and hot rare disease topics – but, also the ability to gain access to the latest research in the field of rare disease – I immediately installed Open Drug Discovery Teams (ODDT).

The application is geared to topics for rare and neglected diseases with the ability to aggregate chemistry data and other open science data through Twitter hashtags.
