In this study, the stability and Hopf bifurcation of a genetic regulatory network with delays are addressed. Some bifurcations may cause network oscillation and induce instability. An impulsive control method is proposed to control the bifurcations. A numerical simulation was performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
