Partitioning heritability of regulatory…variants across 11 common diseases http://www.Cell.com/ajhg/abstract/S0002-9297(14)00426-1 Almost 80% #noncoding v 10% coding

The paper below claims to find most of the heritability of 11 common diseases in regulatory regions (79% of heritability found in regulatory regions, <10% in protein coding regions).

Partitioning heritability of regulatory and cell-type-specific variants across 11 common
