Ubiquitous Polygenicity of Human Complex Traits: Genome-Wide Analysis of 49 Traits in Koreans

Figure 3

Heatmap of the proportions of variance explained attributed to individual chromosomes for 47 traits.

On the y-axis is the variance explained by each chromosome () weighted by the total variance explained by all SNPs () and averaged across all traits, except INS0 and HOMA, for which the estimates of are zero. The estimates of and the traits were clustered by the hierarchical clustering approach and the heatmap plot was generated by the gplots package in R.
