[protege-owl] properties on classes?

I am creating a classification to store genetic data.  A given DNA  
sequence will be an individual of a given family.  I am modeling these  
families as classes in OWL.  Therefore, let's say sequence123 will be  
an individual of the class A_family_sequence.  What I would like to do  
is have the option of adding properties to the families so that, in  
the future, it wouldn't be too difficult to implement some kind of  
classification software which can determine which family a given DNA  
sequence belongs to based on it's characteristics.  So for example,  
given a new sequence, sequence456, we can determine if it best fits an  
individual of A_family_sequence or B_family_sequence.  Of course all  
the sequences which have, for example, A_family_sequence as it's  
parent, will share the same family level property values.
