Dye molecules play an important role in textile industries due to its color. Management of water pollution is one of the major challenges for environment. About 2% of these dyes are directly discharged as aqueous effluent and 10% are lost during textile coloration process .Several combinations of treatment methods have been developed in order to effectively process textile waste water, decolourization is one of the method. The microorganisms were isolated out from the textile effluent for decolourization. And various biochemical assays were performed for the characterization of microorganisms. Dyes were taken at different concentration and organisms were inoculated for estimating the degradation efficiency and the desired microorganism was screened. The genome of the effective microorganism against textile effluent was identified. Moreover, protein pattern of microorganism were studied while degrading the textile effluent.
