<p>Lipid droplet intermediates have recently been described in the fission yeast <em>Schizosaccharomyces pombe</em> (please see link below). These intermediates arise from fission and fusion events, and presumably occur during lipid droplet biogenesis, degradation or interaction with other organelles.</p> <p>Here we show similar and novel lipid droplet intermediates in the budding yeast <em>Saccharomyces cerevisiae</em>.</p>
