Abstract

The dissertation consists of two research topics. The first part describes the discovery and analysis of Lrk/Tak receptor like kinase gene clusters in barley and other grass species. Our study revealed that their diversification is associated with subfunctionalization and cultivar-specific transcript accumulation. The second part describes the functional analysis of three pivotal secondary metabolite enzymes in barley-powdery mildew interactions. We found that secondary metabolites contribute both to basal penetration resistance and to Mla influenced infection kinetics.
