We present work in progress on combinatorial formulas for cluster variables arising from certain periodic cluster algebras. These formulas are phrased in terms of brane tilings which arise in the string theory literature. No prior knowledge of brane tilings or string theory will be assumed, and some connections to cluster algebras and quivers will be explained. Part of this talk is based on work with In-Jee Jeong and Sicong Zhang from the 2011 and 2012 REU's at University of Minnesota.
