I am a final year Molecular Sciences student (chemistry and molecular 
biology) and am trying to teach myself some bioinformatics programming. 
My history is in Basic from years ago. Because of this, I find Python a 
bit easier to understand. Having said this, is biopython widely used, or 
would I be as well persevering with learning Perl, and then bioperl 
which seems to have  a bigger following?

Just one more question. Are most people involved in bioinformatics 
programming  working in industry/academia , are are there  people  
involved in open access , internet based projects? - just curious!
