Antibiotics are small molecules or compounds which are effective in treating microbial infections such as due to bacteria, fungi and protozoa. These are classified based on their structure and mechanism of action into cyclic lipopeptides, oxazolidinones & glycylcyclines.                 
Vaccines are dead or inactivated organisms or compounds that are used to provide immunity to a particular infection or disease. Vaccines are of different types-live and attenuated (vaccines against chicken pox), inactivated (BCG vaccine), subunit (Hepatitis C), toxoid, conjugate, DNA, recombinant vector vaccines and other experimental vaccines.

Antibiotics and vaccines are both used to fight germs but they work in different ways. Vaccines are used to prevent disease while antibiotics are used to treat diseases that have already occurred.

The Archaea constitute a domain and kingdom of single-celled microorganisms. These microbes are prokaryotes and they have no cell nucleus or any other membrane-bound organelles in their cells. Archaea were initially classified as bacteria, receiving the name Archaebacteria, but Archaeal cells have unique properties separating them from the other two domains of life, Bacteria and Eukaryota. The Archaea are further divided into multiple recognized phyla and these classifications rely heavily on the use of the sequence of ribosomal RNA genes to reveal relationships between organisms (molecular phylogenetics). Most of the culturable and well-investigated species of Archaea are members of two main phyla, the Euryarchaeota and Crenarchaeota.
