Curriculum Vitae
Paolo Carnier is full professor in Animal Breeding and Genetics at the University of Padova (Italy), Department of Comparative Biomedicine and Food Science. Since 1991, he published 175 publication items including refereed articles in scientific journals, non refereed articles in journals, refereed and non refereed conference papers, and contributed chapters in books (source: Google Scholar, accessed at https://scholar.google.it/citations?user=LMz0dkAAAAAJ on March 16, 2018). The total number of citations of these items is 2277.
Paolo published 92 articles in international peer-reviewed scientific journals. These papers have been cited 1256 times by 832 citing articles. Of these papers, 55 have been published in the last 10 years. His current H-index is 20 (Source: Web of Science, accessed at http://apps.webofknowledge.com on December 1, 2015). The total impact factor of the 87 articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals is 137.24 (Source: InCites Journal Citation Reports, accessed at https://jcr.incites.thomsonreuters.com on March 16, 2018).
Since 1997, Paolo coordinated 20 research projects funded by public institutions and private companies. These projects focused on investigations in the field of quantitative genetics applied to the enhancement of livestock, fish and canine populations. Specific topics of investigation were:
a) phenotypic and genetic aspects of variation in fine composition and technological traits of milk and relationships with the efficiency of cheese-making;
b) effectiveness and reliability of infrared spectroscopy (IS) methods as a tool for individual phenotyping on a large scale and application to animal breeding programs;
c) variation in functional traits of dairy and beef cattle and development of breeding value prediction models;
d) genetic analysis of beef and meat quality traits in double‑muscled Piemontese cattle and estimation of associations with polymorphisms in candidate genes;
e) development of a combined purebred‑crossbred selection program for pig lines with special focus on the efficiency of dry‑cured ham production;
f) breeding against hereditary diseases in the purebred dog: definition of features of screening programs, estimation of genetic parameters and development of models for prediction of breeding values;
g) breeding for resistance to infectious diseases in farmed fish using genomic tools;

Paolo has been and is reviewer for the international scientific journals: Journal of Animal Science, Journal of Dairy Science, BMC Genetics, Animal Reproduction Science and Livestock Science. He participated in the Scientific Commission of F.R.S.-FNRS (Fund for Scientific Research, Belgium) as project evaluator and was charged by Wageningen University (The Netherlands) to act as reviewer of PhD projects. Paolo has been component of the final evaluation board of the PhD course in Animal Science of the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), Wageningen University, University of Bologna (Italy) and University of Milano (Italy).
Paolo acted as supervisor of 15 PhD students (some of the PhD theses can be downloaded from http://paduaresearch.cab.unipd.it)
