    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.
    parent: SO:0000628

    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

    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.
