Title: Origins of cell-to-cell bioprocessing diversity and implications of the extracellular environment revealed at the single-cell level

We probed the lipid expression dynamics of the oleaginous yeast Yarrowia Lipolytica. We observed that neutral lipid expression is sporadic. By performing single-cell analysis, we found that such noise emanates from the metabolic reaction level. Our results provide an alternative insight into the regulation and phenotypic variability of lipogenesis.
