Though when it comes to open source bioinformatics projects, Perl 
and Python have a large foothold
among most most bioinformaticians. Most utilities that require 
speed are often written in C and C++ (BLAST, HMMER, SAMTOOLS etc).

I think D stands a good chance as a language of choice for 
bioinformatics projects.
