Abstract
The latest searches with $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV data from 2015 with final states containing Higgs bosons decaying to bottom quarks are presented. Even though the majority of Higgs bosons should decay to bottom quarks, this final state remains very elusive because of overwhelming standard model background. In order to enhance the sensitivity of the standard model searches, additional final state objects are selected when available. We report on the searches with Higgs decaying to a $\mathrm{b}\overline{\mathrm{b}}$ pair in the production with an associated top pair and in vector boson fusion. We also report on the production with an associated single top, which is particularly enhanced in models were the relative sign of coupling between top-higgs is flipped with respect to the Standard Model. No excess is observed.
