Genome assembly nomenclature
Genome assemblies are named according to the following formula:
   [species abbreviation]-[cultivar or accession]-[quality]-[provider].[version]
   Zm-B73-REFERENCE-GRAMENE-4.0 (B73 reference genome version 4, from Gramene),
   Zx-PI566673-REFERENCE-YAN-1.0 (Zea mays spp. mexicana, PI 566673, reference genome version 1, from the Yan lab)

Genome identifiers are shorter versions used as prefixes to gene model identifiers. They take the form:
   [species abbreviation][5 digits]
   Zm0004d (Zm-B73-REFERENCE-GRAMENE-4.0)
   Zx0001a (Zx-PI566673-REFERENCE-YAN-1.0)

Annotation identifiers are built from genome identifiers:
   [genome identifer].[version]
   Zm0004d.2 (Zm-B73-REFERENCE-GRAMENE-4.0)
   Zx0001a.1 (Zx-PI566673-REFERENCE-YAN-1.0)

Definition of terms
Draft genome
Genome has been sequenced and assembled into contigs, but contigs have not been assembled into pseudomolecules.
Data about data. Metadata for genome assemblies includes information about the plant that was sequenced, methods used, data providers and contributers, downloads, and more.
Reference genome
Genome has been completely sequenced and assembled into pseudomolecules.
