Formerly Messengers, these resources are comprehensive summaries for clinicians on genomic disorders, technologies or topics. Deep dive is inspired by the Gene Reviews resources for genomic healthcare providers.
All feature a bottom line containing the key clinical pearls and are written with awareness that the busy clinician may not have time to read through the entire resource.
When viewed online, the deep dive resources are intended to be interactive without being overwhelming. A clinician can visit the topic page and expand the section that contains the answer to their clinical question. Resources can also be downloaded, printed, or emailed in PDF format. 
The deep dive resources were developed as part of a randomized controlled trial known as the GenetiKit project which was demonstrated to be a very successful knowledge translation format. [PMID: 21746696; PMID: 27583994]
