This review presents an overview of Bioinformatics, basics and applications. In this review, we provided an introduction and basic outline of bioinformatics which involves database, sequence comparison, different types of alignments, study of homology modelling, applications involved in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is a field concerned with the cost-effective analysis of large amounts of data. Hence, Various educational institutes and research units have implemented a new bioinformatics course for students. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary discipline of the life sciences that aims to build methods and analysis tools to study huge volumes of biological data, assisting with data storage, organisation, systematisation, annotation, visualisation, query, mining, understanding, and interpretation. Bioinformatics has been used in microbial biotechnology in various ways, including computationally analysing wet-lab data. Bioinformatics plays a vital role in the areas of structural genomics, functional genomics, and nutritional genomics. Bioinformatics' future prospects include its contribution to the functional understanding of the human genome, which will lead to improved therapeutic target research and personalised therapy. As a result, bioinformatics and other scientific fields must work together to flourish for the benefit of humanity.
