This article proposes a method to address the problem that can arise when covariates

errors, or when a true mixture of regressions produced the data. The method begins with non-

mixture regression model to the selected data with help of a new penalization scheme. Under certain

even when the population is heterogeneous. We further prove that there exists an elbow-point in

the model. By simulations, we demonstrate that the new procedure can substantially improve the

applying the proposed procedure to motif data analysis in molecular biology, we demonstrate that

the new method holds promise in practice.
