Comments P.15 bottom paragraph: "The sizes of haploid and diploid cells vary with the phase of growth (ref 64) and from strain to strain. Typically, diploid cells are 5 × 6µm ellipsoids and haploid cells are 4µm diameter spheroids (BNID 108257, 108258). The volumes and gross composition of yeast cells are listed in Table V. During exponential growth, haploid cultures tend to have higher numbers of cells per cluster compared to diploid cultures. Also, haploid cells have buds that appear adjacent to the previous one, whereas diploid cells have buds that appear at the opposite pole (ref 66)."
