Production and characterization of polyhydroxyalkanoates in Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 9027 from glucose, an unrelated carbon source.
The production and characterization of polyhydroxyalkanoic acids (PHAs) from glucose in Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 9027 is described. We determined that the synthesis of PHAs was not due to aExpand
