CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method for producing a PHA mixture, comprising: culturing a microorganism having a first gene encoding a PHA synthase that synthesizes a copolymer PHA (A) and is derived from the genus Aeromonas, and a second gene encoding a PHA synthase that synthesizes a PHA (B) having a melting point 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.
