Biography:Teresia Buza (maiden: Mrema) was born in Moshi district, Kilimanjaro region, Tanzania. She is a Permanent resident in the USA. She has three children, Joe (MSU alumni 2012 - Computer Science), Janeth (MSU alumni 2012 - Finance) & Steve (MSU Freshman 2014 - Computer science).

Teresia Buza received her:
. BSc. in Crop Science from Sokoine University of Agriculture, Tanzania
. MSc. in Horticulture from University of Nairobi, Kenya
. PhD. in Veterinary Medical Sciences (Bioinformatics) from Mississippi State University.
. Certificate of Computational Biology from Mississippi State University.

Research Interest: Her major research interests focus on:
. Using her computational biology & bioinformatics skills to make biological sense out of high-throughput data generated from ‘omics experiments (genomics; transcriptomics -> RNA-Seq & microarray; proteomics).

. Developing databases, user-friendly tools and educational resource to facilitate disease biomarker discoveries in non-model animals. She is currently building a database known as "VetBioBase" for use by animal and veterinary research communities. For more information please visit: http://vetbiobase.igbb.msstate.edu
