Method Abstract: "[Researchers] used soft X-ray tomography (SXT) a high-resolution, quantitative imaging technique to measure cell size and organelle volumes in yeasts." P.232 left column bottom paragraph: "To better understand cell size control and organelle inheritance during bud emergence and formation of the daughter cell, [researchers] measured cell and organelle volumes in daughter and mother cells separately. The bud scar(s) on the cell surface was readily identified (an example of bud scars is shown in the supporting information, Figure S2)."
Comments P.232 right column: "In this study, about 67% of cells had no bud scar, 14% of cells had one bud scar, 12% of cells had two bud scars, and <6% of cells had three to seven bud scars."
