Dark Matter Searches in Dwarf Galaxies

Abstract:  Dwarf galaxies have long been considered a prime target in the search for a dark matter signal from the sky. I will discuss the current status of dark matter searches from dwarf galaxies and present results on the analysis of gamma-ray emission and dark matter content in recently discovered dwarf galaxies, including tests that are needed in order to test the hypothesis that any observed emission is due to a conventional astrophysical origin.
