This level is easily navigated and completed. For the most part you will be heading northwest and west. Eventually you enter a room with a generator. The forcefield impeding your way to biological research will dissipate if you destroy the generator. You may then continue westward to biological research.

The collected order of recordings is reverse i.e. 20, 10, 9.
