Steady state analysis using the circuit-breaking algorithm. The CBA is used for an efficient calculation of the steady states of the system for the MCMC parameter samples and subsequent automatic classification into mono- and bistable systems (a-c). d Result of this classification analysis. Depicted is also the distribution of the second stable steady state \(\bar z_{3}\ne 0\) in case of a bistable system, which corresponds to the concentration of active ERK normalized to t=5 min (see Additional file 2)
