Thank you for being honest (:-))

It may but it may not. Some people pick up things pretty quickly - are
you one of them?
Seriously, have a look at the methods that you are about to implement,
search the web
for more information about them and see if you have a good idea how to
do that. You do not have to know anything about the BioJava at this
stage, you can learn about it later. For this
project you also need to know the basics of Chemistry and Molecular
Biology, nothing too
complicated, but still without this knowledge the learning curve for
this project is going to be pretty steep.
I hope I answered your question.
