maybe the genome is the chromosome assembly

can you add the context where these terms are mentioned?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genome/genomes/187 See this link. Here the number of complete genome and chromosomes are different. and if we consider the sequencing of plasmid they both have. So how can we discriminate these two terms?

Some of the organisms like viruses don't have chromosomes. Their nucleic acid is either single or double stranded DNA/RNA. If you sequence one strand of DNA or RNA, that becomes the complete genome for the virus. Some viruses might have more than one strand (like influenza virus), still they are not in the form of chromosome. So, you will find the sequences of all the fragments as one complete genome in Genebank.
