Plant disease resistance often occurs upon direct or indirect recognition of pathogen effectors by host nucleotide-binding leucine-rich-repeat (NLR) receptors. The barley powdery mildew fungus, Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei ( Bgh ), secretes hundreds of candidate secreted effector proteins (CSEPs) to facilitate pathogen infection and colonization...
Article
The barley MLA nucleotide-binding leucine-rich-repeat (NLR) receptor and its orthologs confer recognition specificity to many fungal diseases, including powdery mildew, stem- and stripe rust. We used interolog inference to construct a barley protein interactome (HvInt) comprising 66133 edges and 7181 nodes, as a foundation to explore signaling netw...
Article
The Mla (Mildew resistance locus a) of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is an effective model for cereal immunity against fungal pathogens. Like many resistance proteins, variants of the MLA coiled-coil nucleotide-binding leucine-rich-repeat (CC-NLR) receptor require the HRS complex to function, which includes HSP90 (Heat Shock Protein 90), RAR1 (Requir...

Copy-number alterations are widespread in animal and plant genomes, but their immediate impact on gene expression is still unclear. In animals, copy-number alterations usually exhibit dosage effects, except for sex chromosomes that tend to be dosage compensated. In plants, genes within small duplications (<100 kb) often exhibit dosage-dependent exp...

Grass genomes harbor a diverse and complex content of repeated sequences. Most of these repeats occur as abundant transposable elements (TEs), which present unique challenges to sequence, assemble, and annotate genomes. Multiple copies of Long Terminal Repeat (LTR) retrotransposons can hinder sequence assembly and also cause problems with gene anno...
