As an independent chair breeding and seed department was officially established in 1936 and headed by doctor of agricultural science, Professor V.M. Liebiediev - famous geneticist and breeder and fellow-soldier of M.I. Vavilov. Developing of Scientific School of Professor V. Liebiediev was associated with cytological genetics and plant breeding studies of distant hybridization.
Since 1948 the department was headed by Ph.D. Associate Professor P.F. Plesetskyi. In 1949. Department was attached to the Department of Plant Physiology and Microbiology, which was headed by professor F.I.Zavhorodnii.
In 1952, the department of selection and seed was headed by Honored high school worker, doctor of agricultural sciences, Professor M.O. Zelenskyi, author of more than 100 scientific and methodological developments in the sphere of plant breeding and seed production of agriculture. During 1987 and 1993 the department was headed by professor, candidate of agricultural sciences A.K. Parkhomenko, and since 1993 by Sc.D., Professor L.K. Taranenko. From January 1998 to 2000 the Department was headed by Sc.D. T.V. Chuhunkova.

In 2011, the department was reorganized and today it is called "Breeding and genetics." Since 2011 a new stage with attraction of modern methods of molecular genetics and biotechnology to the training and research work of the department, has begun.
The main areas of research of chair scientists is the application of genetics, plant breeding and seed production techniques and the creation of highly productive varieties and hybrids of agricultural highly- heterized cultures.
