The intestinal microbiome is a complex microbial ecosystem that affects the health of the host organism. We used laboratory and computational methods to study interactions between beneficial and pathogenic microbes within the intestine of C. elegans. We observed the movement of pathogenic yeast through the worm and measured transit time. This data determined modifications of an existing agent-based model. Consistent with findings and literature, the model predicts fewer pathogenic yeast colonize the worm intestine in the presence of beneficial microbes.
