(Color) Variation in the goal complex as a result of variation in one component (model). For various values of A0 and C0 in our complex formation model (B0 = 1000 fixed, and C0<B0<A0), we plot the CV of the goal complex ABC, when only one component (bottom to top manifolds: A, B, C, respectively) is allowed stochastic variation. It can be seen that the CV of the goal complex is most sensitive to variations in the concentration of C, its least abundant component.
