How OSDD works - Open Source Drug Discovery

OSDD emphasizes integrative science through collaboration, open-sharing, taking up multifaceted approaches and accruing benefits from advances on different fronts of new drug discovery.

How to Start a Wordpress Blog: A Guide for Professional Idiots

But what I’ve omitted from the title (for blatant dramatic effect) are the words ‘Like Me’ after it. Because when I had no idea how to start a WordPress blog I searched for a post like this.
