You’ll see it’s not the last page, but page 29 of 44. Yes, there is a lot of it.

The paper in question is An Atlas of Genetic Correlations across Human Diseases and Traits by Bulik-Sullivan; it’s currently a bioRxiv preprint (I obtained the PDF file The DOI for it didn’t return me the paper, but it’s listed as doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/014498). I owe seeing this to Joe Pickrelltweeting this, of course.
