Quantum interference and electronic correlations are processes relevant for electronic transport in nanostructures. We present theoretical studies of transport for various models, which take into account these processes and describe the Fano resonance as well as many-body effects like the Kondo resonance. The results are compared with transport measurements performed on a small quantum dot strongly coupled to electrodes, a large semi-open quantum dot, a side-attached quantum dot to a quantum wire systems and a quantum dot embedded in the metallic ring. We show how conductance characteristics of the Kondo and the Fano resonance are modified in different situations.
