Phenomenologically appealing string vacua with either the Standard Model or some GUT spectrum and suitable orders of magnitudes of matter couplings are essential to establish string theory as the framework that unifies all fundamental interactions. I will present here recent results on the quest for such vacua based on Type II string theory with D-branes, and I will discuss their impact on new physics and cosmological scenarios.
