We present an overview on the resonance dynamics within the microscopic parton-hadron-string dynamics (PHSD) approach which incorporates explicit partonic degrees-of-freedom in terms of strongly interacting quasiparticles (quarks and gluons) in line with an equation-of-state from lattice QCD as well as the dynamical hadronization and hadronic collision dynamics in the final reaction phase. We discuss how the vector meson resonances can be used as a probe of the in-medium effects and demostrate that the low mass dilepton spectra show visible in-medium effects from dynamical vector-meson spectral functions from SIS to SPS energies whereas at RHIC and LHC energies such medium effects become more moderate. We show also that the intermediate mass spectra are dominated by the radiation from the partonic degrees of freedom at RHIC and LHC energies.
