Loop computations put the 'quantum' into quantum field theory. Much effort has focused on their structure and properties, with most spectacular progress in maximally supersymmetric gauge theories in the planar limit. These theories are however quite far from reality as described for instance in the standard model of particle physics. In this talk I'll report on ongoing work using BCFW on-shell recursion to obtain loop amplitude integrands in a much more realistic theory, pure Yang-Mills theory, using methods which apply directly to the standard model.
