We are most happy to announce the publication of the first e-newsletter from ARRIGE. This is an initiative aiming to establish a new communication channel with members of the association and other people interested in the responsible use of genome editing techniques around the world. The edition of this e-newsletter is led by Marion Abecassis and François Hirsch. You might wish to submit your contributions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to receiving your input. I hope you will enjoy this first issue.
