Single-molecule imaging has gained momentum to quantify the dynamics of biomolecules in live cells, as it provides direct real-time measurements of various cellular activities under their physiological environment. Yeast, a simple and widely used eukaryote, serves as a good model system to quantify single-molecule dynamics of various cellular processes because of its low genomic and cellular complexities, as well as its facile ability to be genetically manipulated. In the past decade, significant developments have been made regarding the intracellular labeling of biomolecules (proteins, mRNA, fatty acids), the microscopy setups to visualize single-molecules and capture their fast dynamics, and the data analysis pipelines to interpret such dynamics. In this review, we summarize the current state of knowledge for the single-molecule imaging in live yeast cells to provide a ready reference for beginners. We provide a comprehensive table to demonstrate how various labs tailored the imaging regimes and data analysis pipelines to estimate various biophysical parameters for a variety of biological processes. Lastly, we present current challenges and future directions for developing better tools and resources for single-molecule imaging in live yeast cells. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd
