The unprecedented advancement of genomics research in the past 20 years has led to the phenomenal development of bioinformatics as an emerging field of science. Bioinformatics has been shaped largely by the biology while also changing how genetic and genomic studies are carried out. Animal genomics studies have benefited greatly from bioinformatics, not only by the incorporation of its tools for data handling but also by the adoption of new strategies based on virtual analysis, for how biology research is carried out. This review summarizes the progress in the application of bioinformatics to animal genomics research over the past 20 years and previews future development possibilities. Because the rise of next-generation sequencing has significantly changed the landscape in terms of the scale of bioinformatics in genomic/genetic analysis, it is a critical time to recognize the new needs and challenges that lie ahead, and to optimize resources and efforts in bioinformatics research to embrace the upcoming boom in livestock animal genomics.
