On-going searches for extrasolar planets have revealed a remarkable diversity of worlds, and comparative studies of their properties have begun in earnest. Planets caught in transit are particularly well suited for atmosphere characterization. I will discuss recent results using Kepler data as well as ground-based observations, including attempts to extend these techniques to super-Earth planets.
