“Yamato (大和), named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province, was a battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy. She was lead ship of her class. She and her sister Musashi were the largest, heaviest, and most powerful battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load. The class carried the largest naval artillery ever fitted to any warship – 460 mm (18.1 in) guns which fired 1.36 tonne shells.”

“iPhone needs a port into which to insert a bit of feather, leaf, or bug leg to get that organism’s name and then allow access to a search engine anytime, anywhere, by anyone. Natural biodiversity offers a massive expansion of the search index. Microfluidics and other sequencing miniaturization are making rapid field DNA barcoding nearly accessible. The task is analogous to the one undertaken by current library scanning, but the unread pages in the book of life are being burned every day.
