The reachability and controllability of switched Boolean (control) network are discussed in this paper. Based on semi-tensor product, using the vector form of Boolean logical variable, the switched Boolean (control) network is expressed as a discrete time system with state and control variables. For the switched Boolean network without control, the stabilization by suitable switching signal is discussed. Also, the controllability of the periodic switching signal is learned, and the conditions for stability and controllability of periodic switched Boolean networks avoiding states set *C* are obtained.
