What would be the best option in learning these Programming languages like R, Perl and Python as well as Computational biology kind of things?
As I enquired for an internship I came to know that they charge 30-40K for teaching.

If you wish to learn these languages then ideal way would be to pick one of these, refer any one online resource (there are plenty online, like biopython cookbook) and religiously follow all pages and exercises of the same. Within 2 months you will find yourself in a very strong position.
You can also refer O'Relly Bioinformatics Programming using Python.
A you must have got from my suggestions, my recommendation would be to put your hands on Python. There is great demand for Python experts in Bioinformatics.

I am the fresher ,recently have done my graduation B.E. in biotechnology i have a query and hope i will be answered.
Internship in Eminent bioscience after b.tech biotechnology would be good decision?? Or any place where i could do internship in bioinformatics.?
Kindly answer me sir
I waana be a good bioinformatician but lack of opportunities or knowledge demoralising me

one ore query i had sir..
Since I am about to complete my B.tech in biotech this may..and I want to get into M.tech in bioinfo ..
but i was never exposed before to it.. as i heard that theres alot of programming involved in it..so how should i proceed to learn from the basics of it.. as i was a biology student in my +2..?
And even though after getting into some college for m.tech in bioinfo..and then sitting for placements in IT companies..
how should prepare for getting into them as according to latest trends and eligibilities being asked for..
and also iit provide m tech bioinfo.
and im dump in math and beginer in computational language so,suggest me further im going ahed or what??

Mathematics is useful but not an indispensable part of Bioinformatics. And coding in Bioinformatics is just a few tutorials away. More than learning a language for Bioinformatics, I would recommend you to do a project in Bioinformatics and while doing that follow step by step approach for "How to use various tools and commands involved". There is no substitute for practical learning. Theory won't brush your skills as fast as learning it the practical way.
About the jobs, again Mathematics is not an obligation. If you have the analytical bent of mind, which will be reflected in your interview and projects, you will be taken.
Just to clear the air:
I didn't study Maths in 12th/ high school. I still went into IIT, and I am a computational Biologist. I am sure , you can do it as well. All the best!
