CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

A method for producing a PHA mixture, comprising the step of culturing a microorganism having both of a gene encoding a PHA synthase that synthesizes a copolymer PHA (A) and that is derived from the genus Aeromonas, and a gene encoding a PHA synthase that synthesizes a PHA (B) different...

DESCRIPTION

Technical Field

The present invention relates to a microorganism for producing, in a cell thereof, two or more PHAs different in melting point from one another; and a method for producing a PHA high in crystallization/solidification speed, using the microorganism.
