Day by day, scientists face great challenges in carrying out their research. Traditionally, in order to fund their projects, scientists write research proposals to government agencies, where they are evaluated by other colleagues. The challenge is even greater for early career scientists, as they must compete with established scientists with vast experience. The picture is less encouraging if we consider that the budget problems threaten the "sequestration" of funds for science and technology.
For the first time in Puerto Rico a scientific project is funded through crowd-funding. Researchers at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez used these funds to sequence the endangered Puerto Rican parrot's genome through.
