Archaea were only discovered in the late 1970s and remain by far the least studied of the three domains of life. Traditionally denoted extremophiles, archaea have since been found in diverse habitats. In this month's Genome Watch we review a selection of recent archaeal genome papers that illustrate how some of these species thrive in different environments.
