Method Abstract: "[Investigators] performed in situ measurements of mechanical properties of individual W303 wild-type yeast cells were performed by using an integrated environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM)-nanomanipulator system."
Comments Abstract: "Compression experiments to penetrate the cell walls of single cells of different cell sizes (about 3-6µm diameter), environmental conditions (600 Pa and 3 mPa), and growth phases (early log, mid log, late log and saturation) were conducted." See BNID 103896
