Archea are unicellular microorganisms[1]. They do not have a nucleus or any other organelles. They were classified as a strange group of bacteria and were called archaebacteria. However, later, it was found that archaea have their own evolutionary history and manifest numerous differences in their biochemistry from other forms of life, therefore they are classified as a separate domain in the three-domain system[2].
