Microbial biodegradation have enabled detailed genomic, metagenomic, proteomic, bioinformatics and other high throughput analysis of environmentally relevant microorganisms providing unprecedented insights into key biodegradative pathways and the changing environmental condition. The present work has been carried for the biodegradation of sugar mill effluent with fungal strains. The Aspergillus niger treated effluent have the higher activity than the Penicillium notatum.The physico-chemical analysis of sugar mill effluent were observed that they contain higher amount of heavy metals, organic and inorganic chemicals. And also germination studies were conducted in biodegraded soil using black gram (Phaseolus mungo) under pot culture experiment and best germination, length of shoot, root and total leaf area were noticed in microbial treated than the effluent soil.
