Enclosed is the updated version of Appendix I, "Summary Statement of the Asilomar Conference on Recombinant DNA Molecules".
You'll recall this is what is to be published in the journals and distributed to the participants of the conference as
well as many other interested people. I have modified Sections I and II a bit from the version sent to you about ten days
ago, Section III is my reworked version of Dave and Dick's writeup. (This is the meat of the statement and should be carefully
scrutinized by each of you.) We still lack Section IV and V (which was Section VI in Conference document) because of a foulup
in the mail from Sydney. As soon as it arrives, his writings will be sent along; you may also get copies directly from Sydney.
In any case, please send me your comments about the entire version as soon as you can. Hopefully, your comments will be waiting
for me when I return on April 20th; then I propose to put the final version together for transmittal to the Academy by about
