The phase diagram of QCD has been the object of widespread studies since the suggestion of a QCD phase transition by Cabibbo and Parisi. In recent years lattice studies at finite chemical potential have begun to pinpoint the critical end point. In this talk I discuss these results with special emphasis on how it can be observed in experiments at the RHIC energy scan.
