quorum sensing network, control, stability, Hopf bifurcation

The dynamics of an sRNA-regulated quorum sensing network model were investigated. The stability and the existence conditions for Hopf bifurcation were obtained. A linear feedback controller was proposed to stabilize the Hopf bifurcation of the system. Numerical simulations verified the theoretical analysis results.
