sequence variation

Hi NG.
I seem to remember from my genetic class that one way of generating sequence 
variation in genes (or gene families) is that transcribed mRNA recombines 
back into the genome, and as a consequence of the lower fidelity of the RNA 
pol there will be point mutations in some of the mRNAs! Could anyone please 
provide me with a reference on this phenonemon.
Thanks in advance
