Method P.2 right column top paragraph: "[Researchers] fed the experimental plot of Okie et al. to the GetData graph digitizer(™) [ref 13] software to convert the graphic into a tabular numerical format. This procedure yielded the following fitted empirical formula relating the number of mitochondria in a cell (N) to the cellular volume (V) expressed in μm^3: N = 10^[a(logV+b)], (1) where a ≈ 1.02 and b≈−0.55 are the fitting parameters. This equation was used to generate the estimated numbers of mitochondria per cell listed in table 2."
