ribosomal DNA

The coding locus for ribosomal RNA. This is generally a large and complex locus, typically composed of a large number of repeat units, separated from one another by the intergenic spacer. A repeat unit comprises a gene copy for each individual ribosomal RNA component, separated from one another by the internal transcribed spacer.
