The ARGO-YBJ experiment at YangBaJing in Tibet (4300 m a.s.l.) has been taking data with its full layout since October 2007. Here we present a few signiﬁcant results obtained in gamma-ray astronomy and cosmic-ray physics. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of gamma-ray emission from point-like sources (Crab Nebula, MRK 421), on the preliminary limit on the antiproton/proton ﬂux ratio, on the large-scale cosmic-ray anisotropy and on the proton–air cross-section. The performance of the detector is also discussed, and the perspectives of the experiment are outlined.
