The gyrokinetic plasma turbulence code Gene (this acronym stands for Gyrokinetic Electromagnetic Numerical Experiment) is a software package dedicated to solving the nonlinear gyrokinetic equations in a flux-tube domain. Alternatively, it can be operated in a linear mode, thus calculating the properties (like complex frequencies, parallel mode structures and quasilinear transport coefficients) of the microinstabilities driving the turbulence.

Gene has been developed by a team of people (the Gene Development Team, led by F. Jenko) over the last several years.
