The absence of new particles in high energy searches at LHC highlights the importance of alternative avenues to look for new physics and test the Standard Model. Precision measurements in low-energy processes involving quark flavour changing interactions are among the most important tools in this endeavour. I will discuss several recent examples of how flavour measurements are used to probe for physics beyond the Standard Model, with an emphasis on the challenges faced by theory.
