You should look into Darwin then:
It's a programming language invented for bioinformatics applications.
I've been meaning to look at it. I'm interesting in how this language
compares to a general high-level language like Python or Perl, with a
robust bioinformatics library (biopython or bioperl). Does anyone have
experiences with this and can share them?
