I will give an overview on our recent results for the phase diagram of QCD with Nf=2+1 and Nf=2+1+1 flavors. We use a combination of lattice and Dyson-Schwinger methods to determine the chiral and deconfinement order parameters at finite temperature and chemical potential. In a recent exploratory study we also give a first estimate on the influence of baryon effects on the location of the critical end-point. As a result we find a critical end-point at large chemical potential in the vicinity of the chiral critical line extrapolated from lattice QCD.
