Despite all its success, the Standard Model cannot yet explain many fundamental questions of the Universe.  Low energy precision experiments provide complementary measurements and insights for the search of new physics at high energy colliders.   In the talk, I will discuss new results from two such experiments, EXO-200 and COSINE.   EXO-200 searches for the neutrinoless double beta decay using a large liquid xenon detector in New Mexico.  It just released new search results in the summer with both its Phase-I and Phase-II data.   COSINE is an array of NaI detectors running in South Korea.  It will be the first experiment that has the sensitivity to directly test DAMA’s claimed dark matter annual modulation signal.
