TEFOR is aimed at supporting research on two non mammalian model species: zebrafish and fruitfly. Through its network EFOR and other activities it also aims at making available progress for other model species when possible.
TEFOR is a distributed infrastructure which was founded in 2012 following the award of a French 'Grand Emprunt' grant. It is promoted by three founder research organisms (CNRS, INRA, INSERM) as well as the University of Auvergne.
By providing  readily accessible services and resources and promoting the use of models raising fewer ethical concerns, TEFOR is of major interest to support both public and private research.
