Software systems for the Life Sciences in the context of the Semantic Web will typically be driven by domain knowledge and distributed across the Internet, suggesting that software agent technology should play a key part in the development of such applications. This chapter introduces the reader to the areas of intelligent agents and multiagent systems, describes various Life Science applications that were built following the agent paradigm and reviews future trends in agent technology and their relevance to the development of bioinformatics systems. Some of the obstacles that need to be overcome in this context are discussed.
