INTRODUCTION

The Department of Plant Genetics and Breeding was established in 1965. Professor Bui Huy Dap and Professor Luong Dinh Cua have developed the first essential courses for the establishment of the Department. Professor Vu Tuyen Hoang was the first Head of the Department (1965-1967). During the process of development, many generations of lecturers, scientists, technicians and workers has built the department better and better in training, research and technological transfer.

With more than 50 years history, the Department has many achievements in training and research under the guidance of famous scientists such as Prof. Bui Huy Dap, Prof. Luong Dinh Cua, Prof. Vu Tuyen Hoang, Prof. Tran Nhu Nguyen, Prof. Tran Dinh Long, Prof. Tran Thi Tu Nga, Assoc. Prof. Luyen Huu Chi, Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Van Hien and Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Thi Tram.

The department undertakes training at three levels: undergraduate, master and doctor, and has trained over 600 undergraduate students, 200 master students and 20 PhD students in the major of Plant genetics and breeding. The Department has developed the detailed course outline for a large number of subjects and always assures the high quality of teaching.

In breeding research, the department has also achieved many outstanding results, including 12 new rice varieties (including six hybrid rice varieties), eight hybrid tomato varieties, two soybean varieties and several TGMS lines for development of hybrid rice in the country.

The members of the Department have participated in many national and international plant breeding programs as well as the program of international rice genetic resource assessment. Rice breeding programs for unfavorable environmental conditions, intensive rice, high quality rice. The breeding program on other crops such as soybean, tomato, sweet potato also gained encouraging results. Because of the outstanding contributions, the Department has been awarded the third and second class labour medals and many certificates of merit. Members of the Department also received many valuable awards from the Government, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding has conducted both basic and applied experiments with high professionalism, skill and creativity. Many crop varieties derived from research results of the department have been transferred for agricultural production in Vietnam, contributed significantly to the reputation and position of Vietnam National University of Agriculture.
