The process of teaching learning molecular biology and bioinformatics in IFSULDEMINAS - Campus Machado has limitations regarding the tools used. Through non- directive interviews with students and teachers who study the discipline of molecular biology there is the difficulty in learning the content by the students and also the challenge for teachers to make the subject that is more playful rather abstract and better understanding by the student . Faced with the problem a literature search on the areas of education and biology education was undertaken to try to consider these reflections in the solution to be developed. From the survey, a web content system was developed for molecular biology and bioinformatics routines transcribing gene sequences and queries to the database using the NCBI BLAST tool, through the .NET Bio library. The system has access controls and the contents are divided into modules. The creation of a web system to support the teaching of molecular biology and genetics seeks to contribute to the learning of the contents of these disciplines showing up as a complement to traditional expository approach.
