telomere vs sub-telomere vs telomeric region
Current structure is:
chromosome, telomeric region ; GO:0000781 --[isa]nuclear chromosome telomeric region --[isa]polytene chromosome telomeric region --[partof]telomere cap complex ----[isa]nuclear telomere cap complex ----[isa]Tpg-containing telomere binding complex --[partof]telomere-telomerase complex --[partof]telomeric heterochromatin ----[isa]nuclear telomeric heterochromatin
chromosome, telomeric region ; GO:0000781 The terminal region of a linear chromosome that includes the telomeric DNA repeats and associated proteins.
Val suggests having terms for both:
- telomeric region: includes telomere repeats + subtelomere
- telomere ; includes telomere repeats
Anyone know anything about telomeres?

We can do better on the classification

Should we refer to protozoa at all in GO?
Request for term here:
- although we already have a general (not cellular) one.
Apparently now considered too diverse a group to merit a taxonomic classification. Would be challenging to cobble together a taxonomic union class to cover enough.
