      SINE is a type of transposable elements that exist in all sorts of eukaryotes, especially in human species. According to the previous studys, it implies that SINEs likely play an important role for their host. They can expand in the genome in a certain time. There were two genetic models explaining the expansion of SINE: master copy model and transposon model. The purpose of my work is to consider which model is more close to real history by simulating the expansion process of SINE.
