These lectures provide a pedagogical review of the present status of theories explaining the observed baryon asymmetry of the Universe. Particular emphasis is given on GUT baryogenesis and electroweak baryogenesis. The key issues, the unresolved problems and the very recent developments, such as GUT baryogenesis during preheating, are explained. Some exercises (and their solution) are also provided.
