Practical lessons Immunology are important to aid the learning of abstract theoretical concepts of biological phenomena learned in the classroom. However, little is understood about the enunciation issues of gender discourses that appear in the practical classes of Immunology for students of undergraduate courses in biological and health sciences. Here, the proposal is: (i) develop an experimental computer instructional sequence on the generation of antibody diversity for classes of immunology, (ii) the qualitative characterization of genres and epistemic relations practical lessons for students of immunology graduation in biological and health science. To this end, interviews with teachers and students, observations of lessons Immunology, analysis of the material used in class, and especially with audiovisual recordings resources will be, later sequences of classes will be transcribed and analyzed using software developed by IPN - Kiel (videograph®). The classification of categories of systems will be based on previous studies (Silva & MORTIMER, 2010), and when necessary other systems of categories will be created to better analysis of the transcripts of practical classes. Thus, it is expected to know the speech genres and genera! interactions that occur among members of experimental workshops of Immunology today. Understanding these interactions can assist in teaching classes in Immunology to undergraduate courses in the biological sciences and health (AU)
