Archaebacteria are primitive bacteria that have a cell wall with branched lipids that helps them tolerate adverse conditions.


Their cell wall lacks peptidoglycan and they have branched chain lipids in the cell wall. They have multiple RNA polymerases that contain multiple polypeptides.
They are known to live in all places where normal cells cannot survive like sea, hot springs, etc.
