Perl and Bioinformatics for a beginner?

I've been lead to believe that Perl is the prime language used in bioinformatics. Can anyone shed any light on this?
As an MSc student contemplating doing my project on an application of software engineering for bioinformatics (to combine my biochemistry BSc with my software engineering MSc), how difficult would it be and what would be involved?
