We will discuss the existence of new type II ancient compact solutions to the Yamabe flow. These solutions are rotationally symmetric and converge, as $t to -infty$, to a tower of spheres. We will also discuss complete non-compact Yamabe shrinking solitons and the singularity formation of complete non-compact solutions to the conformally flat Yamabe flow whose conformal factors have cylindrical behavior at infinity.
