Quantum information theory can be viewed as a theory of inter-conversions among different resources. These resources can be classical or quantum, static (like entanglement) or dynamic (like a quantum channel), noisy or noiseless, and therefore give rise to a plethora of quantum information processing tasks. In this talk, I will give an overview on the structure of quantum resource theories and discuss their applications to entanglement theory, thermodynamics, uncertainty relations, and the generalizations of Noether's theorem. This talk is based on joint works with Shmuel Friedland, Vlad Gheorghiu, Iman Marvian, Robert Spekkens, and Nolan Wallach
