Method The mean size and percentage of budded cells of a wild-type haploid strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown in batch culture over a wide range of doubling times (tau) have been measured using microscopic measurements and a particle size analyzer.
Comments P.93 left column bottom paragraph: "The data in Table 1 clearly show that mean size increases with growth rate, especially at the faster growth rates. There is a consistent relationship between cell size and growth rate for any one medium even when doubling times vary due to differences in separate batches of media." P.94 left column 2nd paragraph: "The percentage of budded cells decreases as growth rate decreases (Table 1), as has been observed before (refs 7, 22), and it is possible to calculate the duration of the budded phase using equation 5 (see Appendix)." Smallest volume 15.9 µm^3 on YEP+sorbitol medium. Greatest volume 42.5 µm^3 on YEP+fructose. See BNID 100427, 100430
