I've got a quick question. How do you pronounce "rhizogenes" as in Agrobacterium rhizogenes?

Is is "ry-zoh-genes" or "ry-zaw-jen-nes" or neither?

Thanks!

EDIT: 100 views and nobody knows? I kinda need to know it for a job interview so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've always heard it as ry-zoh-genes but no promises.
