Which Are The Best Programming Languages For A Bioinformatician?

I personally learned R first as the Bioconductor repository harbors many essential packages for my work related to NGS analysis, such as tximport, DESeq2, csaw etc. Still, python is also a good choice. Look around in the web for tutorials and choose the language you feel more comfortable with. Both are recommended for bioinformatics.

If you only want one language, then go with Python first.
