Method "Strains were propagated to log phase in synthetic medium with the indicated carbon source, and the area (A) of a nuclear cross-section was determined for n cells. All strains were in the S288c background and were congenic except at the noted alleles. Nuclear volume (V) was estimated under the assumption that each nucleus was spherical. Cell volume distributions were directly measured with a Coulter particle analyzer and a representative distribution was analyzed. The mean and SD of each distribution were calculated." Estimation from microscopic cross-sectional area
Comments Value in range is SD
