Recently, the research in the Robert Penchovsky laboratory was supported by a grant DN13/14/20.12.2017, completed with 20 publications with IF of 84 points and Q1-4 of 274 points entitled "Design and experimental validation of chimeric antisense oligonucleotides as antibacterial agents" and is currently supported by a grant KP-06-H31/18/13.12.2019 entitled "Engineering functional nucleic acids for synthetic control of gene expression in prokaryotes and eukaryotes" awarded by the Bulgarian National Science Fund (BNSF). You can see a presentation of the results of the first half of the project DN13/14/20.12.2017 (in Bulgarian only). Our research was noticed and commented in high impact factor journals such as Nature Biotechnology, Nature Methods, ACS Synthetic Biology, and RSC Chemistry World.
