The edge subring of a hypergraph H is the monomial subalgebra parameterized by the hyperedges of H. Its defining ideal is a toric ideal which we can understand by studying the combinatorics of H. In this talk we will survey recent results on the toric ideals of hypergraphs with a particular focus on the combinatorics of minimal generators.
