Variovorax paradoxus is a ubiquitous, aerobic, gram negative bacterium present in diverse environments. This organism has been associated with a number of interesting biotransformations, including atrazine degradation, nitrotyrosine assimilation, and mineralization of acyl-homoserine lactone signals. It is able to grow autotrophically using hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide for energy and carbon and has been implicated in plant growth promotion, as part of the rhizosphere consortium with nodulating diazotrophs. This microorganism was also recently identified as a member of methylotrophic community in the human oral cavity (adapted from PMID 19523213).

Strain EPS was cultivated from the soil in the Land Lab at CSU San Bernardino. It is one of 2 (December 2010) sequenced V.paradoxus strains. This strain has only 1 chromosome, whereas the other strain, S110, has 2 chromosomes.
