Prof Stephen Moore
Director Centre for Animal Science, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation, University of Queensland.
Prof. Moore has over 30 years experience in bovine genomics including Chair in Bovine Genomics at University of Alberta between 1999 and 2011. He established and led the successful Bovine Genomics Program, a multi-institutional collaboration from 2006 until 2011 and which has grown, under the Livestock Gentec banner, to be a world leader in the area. Multiple projects aimed at identifying genes underlying production and quality traits in cattle have been successfully completed.
Prof. Moore has published over 150 papers related to gene and quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping, genetic marker development and genome sequencing in international peer reviewed journals.
Dr. Moore has been a participant and invited speaker at numerous international conferences and fora, and has given multiple presentations to industry in Australia, Canada and the USA.
He was the Director of the Canadian Farm Animal Genetic Resources Foundation as well as an active member of a number of other steering committees including the International Bovine Genome Sequence Project Steering Committee. Prof. Moore’s group has led or participated in a number of projects examining the genetic basis of feed efficiency in cattle, establishing the group as a leader in this field. Over his career, Prof. Moore has supervised 7 research associates, 10 postdoctoral fellows, and 20 graduate students eighteen of whom have completed their graduate studies.
Dr. Moore has over 140 publications in peer reviewed journals, 9 invited presentations, 213 oral and poster presentations at National and International conferences. Dr. Moore has 6 patents awarded and multiple predictive gene marker tests have been commercialized for cattle.
