Abstract

From an exponentially growing yeast culture, we obtained a synchronized culture using velocity gradient centrifugation. At five minute intervals, we determined the average cell buoyant density and the peak frequency cell volume to calculate the average cell mass at each of these time intervals. We found that the average yeast cell increases in mass at an exponential rate.
