I'd like to request terms for rDNA and subtelomere
Can you give defintions and parents?
Is this ok?
rDNA -> DNA that encodes rRNA. In pombe these are often organized into tandem repeats, with the exception of 5S rRNA which is spaced out in the genome.
subtelomere: heterochromatic region adjacent to the telomere (on the centromeric side) that contains repetitive DNA and sometimes genes and is transcribed (TERRA arise from the subtelomere.)

added subtelomere SO:0001997
rDNA added as exact synonym of rRNA_primary_transcript
contains both internal and external spacer regions as parts
Does this work?
Sorry if I am missing something but isn't it weird to have 'primary transcript' as a synonym to DNA?
OK, I have changed the synonym to rRNA_gene. I think this works better.
