Method "In ref. (Feist et al., 2007 PMID: 17593909), the concentrations of all amino acids per gram dry-cell-mass in E. coli are documented. Multiplying this number with the dry-cell mass of an E. coli cell (3?10^-13g) and the number of molecules in one millimole (6.022?10^20), for each amino acid, [researchers] can determine the number of molecules of each amino acid in one E. coli cell."
