I am a molecular genetics graduate student with some experience in Python and C++ programming (99% of my work is in the wet lab). Recently, I came across the Github pages of bioinformatics packages being built using newer languages like Rust, Go and Julia. I am curious about why there is no interest in doing the same with Swift considering that Swift can theoretically run on as many platforms as these other languages. From a beginner's perspective, Swift seems to be powerful and yet have a simpler syntax than Rust and Go without sacrificing much on execution speed. Please feel free to correct if I have made any incorrect statement in this post. Thank you.
