Determining the contribution of functional genetic categories is fundamental to understanding the genetic etiology of complex human traits and diseases. Here we present Annotation Informed MiXeR: a likelihood-based method to estimate the number of variants influencing a phenotype and their effect sizes across different functional annotation categories of the genome using summary statistics from genome-wide association studies. Applying the model to 11 complex phenotypes suggests diverse patterns of functional category-specific genetic architectures across human diseases and traits.
