I'm a new member and I look forward to being an active member in this forum.
I'm new to C; making the transition after using Python, Perl and Matlab the past 1-2 years (to help me in my biology research).
I was wondering though: How popular is C in the bio-computing field? From what I'm reading, I get the impression that C is mainly used in algorithm design and phylogenetic tree-analysis and pretty much nothing else.
If anyone has used C in bioinformatics, I'd be appreciative to hear such opinions.
