PATRIC is an integration of different types of data and software tools that support research on bacterial pathogens. The typical biologist seeking access to the PATRIC data and tools will usually explore the web-based user interface. However, there are many instances in which programatic or command-line interfaces are more suitable. For users that wish command-line access to PATRIC, we provide the tools described in this document. We call these tools the P3-scripts. They are intended to run on your machine, going over the network to access the services provided by PATRIC.
