We construct and study mathematical models of two gene networks: a circular gene network of molecular repressilator, and a natural gene network which does not have circular structure. For the first model, we consider discretization of phase portrait of corresponding nonlinear dynamical system and find conditions of existence of an oscillating trajectory (cycle) in this phase portrait. The second model describes the central regulatory circuit of one gene network which acts on early stage of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster mechanoreceptors morphogenesis. For both models we give biological interpretations of our numerical simulations and give a short description of software elaborated specially for these experiments.
