On large scales, the matter distribution of the Universe follows a web-like pattern, consisting of cluster, filament, sheet and void. The cosmic-web shapes the formation of galaxies as their environment, and is strongly influenced by the dark components of our Universe. It is the junction where astrophysics and cosmology meet. I will summarise my recent research in this active frontier, focusing on the detection of missing baryons in filaments, and the great opportunities and challenges for using clusters and voids to constrain cosmology.
