I'm looking for an IPA spelling of brassiceae. If anyone could help that would be great! My girlfriend really needs this!

It's Brassicaceae and I've never done this before but I'll give it a whirl

bræs - ɪ - ke - si - i

Although some pronounce the last few letters as si-e (see-ay)

When it comes to pronouncing scientific Latin, just try to follow the basic rules of pronunciation and speak with confidence. For many of the names, there is no single correct pronunciation.
What did the parasitic Candiru fish say when it finally found a host? - - "Urethra!!"
