Method Abstract: "[Researchers] used soft X-ray tomography (SXT)a high-resolution, quantitative imaging techniqueto measure cell size and organelle volumes in yeasts." P.230 right column: "The average cytosolic volume (Figure 2C) was calculated by combining the cell wall/membrane volume with the total volume of segmented organelles and then subtracting this combined volume from the total cell volume."
Comments P.231 left column top paragraph: "On average, the nucleus occupied 6–11% of cell volume: the nucleolus occupied 20% of the nucleus: vacuole(s) occupied 3–14% of the cell and mitochondria and lipid bodies occupied 1–2% of the cell (Figure 3): therefore, the cytosol, other nonsegmented organelles, large macromolecular complexes, such as the ribosomes, and the cytoskeleton occupy the remaining 70% of cell volume."
