Scientific research works implemented by the staff of chair and Metabolism Problem Laboratory are in the direction of influence of biologically active amines (ethanolamine, acetyl-ethanolamine, sulphoethanolamine, succinyl ethanolamine) and mineral elements (bentonite, zeolite) on the growth and development of farm animals and plants as well as at the clarification of biochemical, physiological and immunological mechanisms underlying its basis. 2 textbooks on biochemistry, manuals, monographs and brochures have been written and published by the staff of chair. Due to the hard work done by the professorial pedagogical staff of the chair for the first time 4 textbooks on microbiology, 3 textbooks on virology, 3 monographs, manuals have been published in Armenian language. Lecturers and researchers have always shown active participation in international conferences, have presented 150 scientific reports, have published 650 scientific articles and have received numerous copyright patents.
The staff of the chair took part in various international events on biochemistry, as well as symposiums on biochemistry organized under the aegis of FEBS (Federation of the Societies of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), ISN (International Society for Neurochemistry), and UNESCO. Antibiotics Problem Laboratory has been operating adherent to the chair since 1963. The scientists of this department conducted researches in the direction of lactic acid bacteria in local races, and several other local preservation duration, tea mushroom culture fluid comprehensive and in-depth research directions.
