Searching for Hemophilia Gene in Romanov Remains

Russian scientists are trying to find a gene causing hemophilia in the remains discovered under Yekaterinburg on 29 July, 2007 and believed to belong to Alexei and Maria Romanovs.
      
      It is known that Alexei, son of Nicholas II Romanov, suffered from inherited hemophilia, but the gene has not been found yet.
      
      The results of DNA testing will be published in the second half of July. The first stage of the investigation showed the bones belonged to a boy aged 12-14 and a girl aged 16-18.
      
      Besides, the governor of the Sverdlovsk Region claims, the examination conducted by the U.S. specialists corroborates the bones belong to the members of the Russian royal family.
