The amount of biological information generated in the last two decades is enormous because of Next generation sequencing (NGS) discovery that has enabled researches to sequence and model almost every organism and also due to rapid advancements in techniques and tools in experimental research. The research which was first carried out at fields, labs and clinics is now started with computational analysis (in-silico) of information, modeling, experiment planning and hypothesis development. Various applications of bioinformatics are algorithms, databases, and other data analysis tools and softwares that enable storage, analysis, retrieval, annotation and visual interpretation of biological information which in turn increases the knowledge of various biological systems that help in making new discoveries regarding production, human health, animal health and plant health keeping in mind the challenges of climate change, water and area shortage. This will help not only in increased plant and animal production but also in management and treatment of various human, animal and plant diseases in addition to the underlying mechanisms and strategies of the rapidly evolving pathogenic microorganism and antibiotic resistance.
Keywords: Animal health, Plant development, Human health, Crop improvement, Genomics, Computational biology, Vaccines, Animal/human diseases, Plant breeding and genetics, Computer aided tools/softwares.
