A variant of a simple method for chaos control is applied to achieve control in random Boolean networks (RBN). It is shown that a RBN in the chaotic phase can be forced to behave periodically if a certain quenched fraction γ of the automata is given a fixed state (the system variables) every τ time steps. An analytic relationship between γ and τ is derived and numerically tested.
