Moses is credited with writing not only Genesis, but the books of Exodus through Deuteronomy. (I should add that the last few verses of Deuteronomy 34 are thought to have been written by someone else [possibly -- even *probably* -- Joshua, who was Moses' "right hand man.])
That's a good question because the Bible isn't specific in saying the answer, but a lot of people believe that it was most-likely Moses. (:
Moses under inspiration combined together prior documents to write Genesis. Our current version comes from Ezra who shortened and essensified the original Genesis of Moses.
