This laboratory was used by Dr. James Marcus for his serious work, while operating as general manager for the Umbrella Research Center, a leadership training school. The laboratory was built near a body of water in the Arklay Mountains, using a church as a facade.

It was here that Marcus studied the Progenitor and Tyrant viruses, as well as where he was assassinated in 1988.

Further notes

In the initial development of Resident Evil 0, the laboratory was to be built on a tall island stack. The height was downsized significantly later in development.[1][excerpts 1]
