Understanding the dynamics of interactions in complex biochemical reaction networks is an important problem in mathematical biology. Mathematical  models of biochemical networks often lead to complicated  dynamical systems with many unknown parameters. Graphs associated with  biochemical networks can be used to predict the existence of  multistationarity 
in a dynamic model without knowing the parameter values. We will present a general graph-theoretic condition for  multistationarity  applicable to mass-conserved biochemical networks.
