Hi Vipul,

thanks for the reply. Maybe I've made some mistake, but with g1, g2, 
etc. I mean instances of Gene, i.e.: Gene is the class of genes, g1,2,3 
belong to the set of all genes (and they're members of Set1 too).

If you instead refer to the difference between:

- g1, intended as all the DNA fragments that have the sequence 
identified by the name g1
- the particular population whose members are all instances of g1 (all 
have the same sequence)

I am considering the first case and considering "g1" as an individual, 
since I don't need further levels of details.
