Jessica L. Jones received her B.S. degree in marine biology from the Troy University, Troy, AL, USA, in 1998 and started working for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Gulf Coast Seafood Laboratory in Dauphin Island, AL, USA, in 1999. During her tenure as a Microbiologist at FDA, she received her Ph.D. degree in basic medical sciences from the University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL, USA. Jones' research has primarily focused on development and application of isolation, detection, and enumeration methods for pathogenic Vibrio species in environmental and food samples. Her current interests focus on utilizing classical microbiological and modern molecular tools to better understand the virulence of Vibrio, environmental conditions that affect their prevalence, and evolutionary connection between human pathogenicity and ability to persist in the marine and estuarine environments.
