Accessing Data Programmatically

For more sophisticated users, who may need to perform complex data retrieval or searches for using FaceBase open-access data for analysis, pipelines, etc, there is a Python interface available called deriva-py.

However, you will need to understand about how the data is modeled in the underlying DERIVA system. Please reach out to the FaceBase Hub at, let us know what you need and we can provide guidance to get you started.

You can find more general information about the Python interface at the following links:

Note that there is also an R wrapper available for this code.
