The "you guys know each cell can be very different sizes, right?" paper is out!


The preprint of this paper is on the blog somewhere and I have to make sure to update all the citations when I mention it now.

If you get a chance look at some cells under a microscope sometime! Even if they're cancer cell lines that are 60 years old, you'll see some small ones and some big ones and some square ones and some that look like amoebas, etc., It's really jarring. 

This paper doesn't just point that out to people who are really really good at connecting 360 um glass tubes to other 360 um glass tubes and getting those to hold TENS OF THOUSANDS OF POUNDS PER SQUARE INCH of pressure, but might not know much biology.... it ALSO provides strategy for normalizing for cell size.
