The main objective of animal genomics is to comprehend the genetic and molecular basis of all biological processes in animal. By understanding that, animals can be utilized as biological resources in the development of new breeds with improved quality and minimized costs. Animals with stress-resistant quality along with yield traits and reproductive traits are of major interest. This data, along with suitable technology, may help in designing predictive procedures for animal health and may also become part of future breeding decision management systems. Existing technologies generate a large amount of genomic data that requires proper processing, storage, and distribution. This data include sequence information as well as information on various markers, maps, functional discoveries, etc. In this chapter, we provide an insight on how different approaches, tools, and databases can be fruitfully utilized for the various animal breeding and genetics programs. Important objectives for animal bioinformatics comprises to encourage the submission of all sequence data into the public domain via various repositories; to make accessible the annotation of genes, proteins, and phenotypes; and to illustrate the relationships within the animal data and also between animal and other organisms.
