Comments "For each cell, the corrected fluorescence intensity and the known cell geometry then enables estimation of the average ribosome number density (i.e. the average concentration over the entire cytoplasmic volume) and the peak ribosome number density in the ribosome-rich regions. The average ribosome number density varies from 25,000 to 31,000 ribosomes per cubic micrometre (Fig. S6) with a mean across cells of 27,000 ribosomes per cubic micrometre."
