This study investigates stability problems related to discrete-time randomly switched genetic regulatory networks (GRNs) with time-varying delays. A new discrete-time randomly switched GRN model with known sojourn probabilities is proposed. By utilizing the discrete Wirtinger-based inequality and a newly proposed constraint condition on the feedback regulatory function, which have not been fully used in stability analysis of discrete-time GRNs, we establish delay-dependent stability and robust stability criteria. These criteria possess the sojourn probabilities of randomly switched GRNs. Two numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the established results.
