Method P.947 left column bottom paragraph: "[Researchers] measured times from cytokinesis to budding (G1) and from budding to cytokinesis in haploids, diploids or tetraploids (mothers and daughters), using time-lapse fluorescence microscopy [a technique wherein a camera that periodically takes photographs is attached to a microscope, imaging cellular or intracellular activity] of strains expressing Myo1 tagged with green fluorescent protein (Myo1–GFP)." GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein), a fluorescing molecule, is often used as a label. In this case GFP was fused (through genetic engineering) to another protein, Myo1, which forms a ring at the daughter cell's bud neck.
Comments n=116. Although unspecified, the growth media appears to be glucose according to following sentence from p. 16 in supplementary information (bottom paragraph): "Glycerol/ethanol supports a much slower growth rate than glucose (170 min compared to 100 min doubling time)..."
