My advice is to read lots of books in bioinformatics before making any
further choices.

You can find a list of books at the 'Bioinformatics.Org Bookstore',
which is here;


and I am sure the list will be happy to discuss their favourite
bioinformatics books with you if you ask. Also there are specific
mailing lists for educators and discussion of education relatied
issues. I am sure people on this list can point you to those other
lists (or search around the website).

Good luck!
