I would like to remove dot from bibliography or even in some parts of doc. I would like to remove dot at end of the each sentence.

Thanks, sree7k7

Welcome to TeX.SE! Which bibliography style do you use? – Mico Nov 1 '12 at 1:51
Can you please provide a minimal working example showing how you are building your bibliography? – Gonzalo Medina Nov 1 '12 at 1:53

In the vast majority of .bst files the full stop at the end of a bibliography entry is controlled by the function fin.entry which typically calls the function output.nonnull. output.nonnull typically has a condition for (or calls a function that has) a before.all case where the relevant instruction is add.period$. A possible solution would be to replace add.period$ by " ".
