Jaclyn Saunders


Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Jaci Saunders is a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and an affiliate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The broad goal of her research is to better understand the intrinsic interactions between marine microbial distributions and evolution with that of global biogeochemical cycles. Currently, she is focused on using metaproteomics techniques in the Saito Lab at Woods Hole to understand autotrophic microorganisms in oxygen deficient regions of the modern ocean and the impact these primary producers have on global chemical cycles. Jaci actively uses Python and scientific Python packages for genomics analyses as well as the development of metaproteomic data visualization and analysis pipelines.
