Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference "Physical Biology of the Cell", Rob Phillips, Jane Kondev and Julie Theriot (2009). Page 26 table 1.1 Rules of thumb for biological estimates
Comments P.25 3rd paragraph: "The quantitative rules of thumb in Table 1.1 will serve as the basis of [investigators'] rough numerical estimates that could be carried out using a stick in the sand without reference to books, papers, or tables of data. Where do these numbers come from? Each comes from the results of a long series of experimental measurements of many different kinds."
