Last year, Goff and colleagues reported that clams weren't infected with a retrovirus, but they did carry a retroelement called Steamer.
The researchers were particularly cheered by the complete absence of new "retroelement transpositions:" mutations caused by retrovirus-like sequences that burrowed into the mammalian genome long ago that can become active again in certain cell types.

PAST analysis of multivariate showed that the retroelements in South strains are more diverse than the elements of other strains because Southern strains have defensive mechanism that controls the high mutation rate (Saleem et al., 2001; Arif et al., 2017) and expression of transposons is often measured in relation to mutation.
