Botany is plagued by the same problem as the rest of science and society: our ability to generate data quickly and cheaply is surpassing our ability to access and analyze it. In this age of big data, scientists facing too much information rely on computers to search large data sets for patterns that are beyond the capability of humans to recognize -- but computers can only interpret data based on the strict set of rules in their programming.The Euteleostei form the largest group of the teleosts with about 17,000 living species. This large group includes familiar fish such as trout, pike, hatchet fish, flying fish, lantern fish, swordfish, sea horses, look-downs, butterfly fish and many others.
