Nuclear volume (average)

Value 2.9 µm^3
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference Jorgensen P, Edgington NP, Schneider BL, Rupes I, Tyers M, Futcher B. The size of the nucleus increases as yeast cells grow. Mol Biol Cell. 2007 Sep18(9):3523-32.PubMed ID17596521
Method Morphometry: Image processing software (Particles8 Plus at link) Image processing takes an image as an input and yields 1) another image - take a grayscale image and produce a color image, and (2) set of parameters as output- sphericity (minimal radius/maximal radius), Aspect ratio (feret (width)/breadth), etc.
Comments SD 2% glucose medium, wild-type haploid cells. For fraction of nucleus out of total cell volume in yeast see BNID 104 708 and in HeLa cell see comments section of BNID 101402
