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 were reviewed. And its applications in agriculture were also discussed.
