I am aware that this forum has a lot of threads on which programming languages are relevant for bioinformatics. However, I would like to ask those of you who work in industry what currently the trending languages are that make sense to learn. I assume most bioinformatics people who are remotely working on NGS and similar topics know R and bash to some extend. In industry, for a data analyst role, what else would you recommend and why? Please be so kind and indicate whether you are working in industry yourself. Cheers!
As far as I am aware, bioinformaticians make use of the same tool set regardless of where they work. Some places may impose some constraints on your choice of languages or tools but unless they want you to rewrite entire libraries, you'll be working with the same ones as everybody else.
