The formation and evolution of galaxies is a benchmark for the understanding of our Universe on cosmological scales. The physical properties of distant galaxies are obtained by modelling their integrated energy emission with stellar population synthesis models, from both an observational stand, by translating data into astrophysics as well as in a theoretical framework, by obtaining the spectra of simulated galaxies. The robustness of galaxy formation and evolution inferences is then directly related to the accuracy of these synthesis models and on the stellar evolution framework assumed in the models. I shall first review the state of the art and then discuss recent developments based a new empirical stellar library acquired with the SDSS telescope.
