Where is version information of an assembly stored ?

The version number is stored in the assembly manifest including the assembly name and public key, as well as information on relationships and identities of other assemblies connected with the application.
Version number contains 4 parts like

1. Major version
2. Minor version
3. Build number
4. Revision
For an Example:
Version 1.5.1254.0 indicates 1 as the major version, 5 as the minor version, 1254 as the build number, and 0 as the revision number.
To make the version number of assembly uniquely identify we have to register into the GAC and shared this number to different applications.
