Abstract: Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary area of the science composed of biology, mathematics and computer science. Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to manage biological data that helps in decoding plant genomes. The field of bioinformatics emerged as a tool to facilitate biological discoveries more than 10 years ago. With the development of Human Genome Project (HGP), the data of biology increased fabulously and marvelously. The ability to capture, manage, process, analyze and interpret data became more important than ever. Bioinformatics and computers can help scientists to solve it. Here are introduced roles of bioinformatics, meanwhile Web tools and resources of bioinformatics are reviewed and its applications in agriculture and relevance with other disciplines is also highlighted. Application of various bioinformatics tools in biological research enables storage, retrieval, analysis, annotation and visualization of results and promotes better understanding of biological system in fullness. This will help in animal and plant health care based disease diagnosis and treatment.
