Significant progress has been achieved recently in the determination
of properties of nucleons by lattice methods. This includes studies of
the response of the nucleon to electromagnetic, weak or beyond the
Standard Model probes and the internal dynamics in terms of the
contributions from quarks and gluons. In particular, the systematics
due to simulating in a finite box with a finite lattice spacing and
typically unphysical quark masses have been explored leading to
improved evaluation of both benchmark quantities and less well known, more challenging,
observables. I present selected highlights of recent calculations,
including the nucleon charges, form factors and nucleon sigma terms.
