XXGSStuc##-##-##.#

XX represents the acronym of the plant's scientific name. Currently, GSS contigs are available for Zea mays (Zm) and Sorghum bicolor (Sb).

GSStuc stands for 'Genome Survey Sequences tentative unique contig' assembled from GSSs of the given plant.

##-##-##.# are the date of assembly and the contig number of the contig, in the format Year-Month-Day.Number. For example 02-10-21.1 indicates that the contig was assembled on October 21st, 2002, and that it was assigned contig number 1.
