In this paper, the optimal control problem of a probabilistic Boolean network (PBN), which is one of the significant models in gene regulatory networks, is discussed. In the existing methods of optimal control for PBNs, it is necessary to compute state transition diagrams with 2n nodes for a given PBN with n states. To avoid this computation, a polynomial optimization approach is proposed. In the proposed method, a PBN is transformed into a polynomial system, and the optimal control problem is reduced to a polynomial optimization problem. Since state transition diagrams are not computed, the proposed method is convenient for users.
