The main direction of activities of structural division-The main activity of the laboratory is the study of the chemical composition of seedsfrom grain- legumes, technical plants distributed in the country and collected in a gene bank of the Institute of Genetic Resources, identification of samples with high levels of the chemical composition, which can be used in breeding. The laboratory also conduct study of chlorophyll a, b ​​and carotenoid  contentin leaves of legumes plants, depending on the stage of development.
