The circadian clock is a complex transcriptional network that regulates gene expression in anticipation of the day-night cycle and controls agronomic traits in plants. However, in crops, information on the effects of the internal clock and day-night cues on the transcriptome is limited. We analyzed the diel and circadian leaf transcriptomes in the barley cultivar Bowman and derived introgression lines harboring mutations in EARLY FLOWERING 3 (ELF3), LUX1, and EARLY MATURITY 7 (EAM7). Mutations in ELF3 and LUX1 abolished circadian transcriptome scillations under constant conditions, whereas eam7 maintained oscillations of ≈30% of the circadian transcriptome. However, day-night cues fully restored transcript oscillations in all three mutants and thus compensated for a disrupted oscillator in the arrhythmic barley clock mutants elf3 and lux1. Nevertheless, elf3, but not lux1, affected the phase of the diel oscillating transcriptome and thus the integration of external cues into the clock. Using dynamical modeling, we predicted a structure of the barley circadian oscillator and interactions of its individual components with day-night cues. Our findings provide a valuable resource for exploring the function and output targets of the circadian clock and for further investigations into the diel and circadian control of the barley transcriptome.
