This work was conducted to study the biochemical characteristics of the bacterial species isolated from the beach soil, and water of Sawa Lake using molecular and morphological markers. Samples were collected from the water, and surrounding beach area. The results showed the presence of isolates, including Proteus mirabilis, Providencia vermicola, Alcaligenes aquatilis, Raoultella planticola, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella pneumonia, and P. rettgeri. The molecular diagnosis confirmed those of Biochemical traditional markers using 16S gene primers.
