It is exciting to realize that the Newsletter is establishing itself as a communication vehicle between the Redoxoma group and a now expanded array of colleagues from Brazil and abroad. Welcome to all of you.

In this issue, we can walk through intriguing paths, starting really from the beginning – with redox threads to the origin of life!
