Abstract.  This paper reports progress on gyrokinetic particle simulation of turbulence in fusion plasmas including: (1) Electron transport driven by short wavelength trapped electron mode turbulence; (2) Convergence studies and physics progress in long time simulation of electron temperature gradient turbulence; (3) Electromagnetic simulation of global magnetohydrodynamic modes and finite- stabilization of the ion temperature gradient mode; and (4) compressible magnetic fluctuation in high-beta plasmas driven by anisotropic temperature (mirror mode).
