Starting Bioinformatics
#1
Brick 
Hello everyone. I have recently just taken interest in a career in computer science more specifically I want to get into Bioinformatics. I really find the idea of working in this field exciting but I feel as if I have no direction, no guide to show me what I should do to prepare myself. This semester I took my first programming class, C++, and it was pretty awesome. I wasn't the best but I did okay and got the gist of it. I had never heard of Bioinformatics until this class a few months ago, and Biology was my second choice of major besides CS so naturally I got pretty excited about it. What I would like to know is where can I go to find out more about Bioinformatics? What programming language should I learn? (I heard python is used a lot). What are some good books for a beginner? Also are there any little Bioinformatics programs I can make and mess around with using a c++ compiler?  I am eager and ready for some knowledge and direction from experienced programmers who do this everyday. Thank you for reading and any replies and constructive criticism are welcomed. Cheers.

Biojava and biopearl are some programming used in bioinformatics ... All the best
