Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) provide a compelling framework for unifying the strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions. I will review gauge and Yukawa unification, dark matter, proton decay, topological defects and inflation in supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric GUTs. Some implications of merging grand unification and the weak gravity conjecture will be briefly discussed.
