I review resent results on the chiral and deconfinement transitions of QCD and the associated phase diagram obtained from a combination of lattice results with the framework of Dyson-Schwinger equations. At zero chemical potential we find excellent agreement with existing lattice results. We discuss the potential location of the critical endpoint for Nf=2+1 and Nf=2+1+1 flavors and present first results for the Polyakov potential at finite chemical potential.
