I'm rather new to biology (I'm an applied mathematician) and I'm currently studying models of Notch-Delta dynamics between cells with filopodia and lamellipodia.

What is exactly the difference between these two? I find it a bit confusing since both seem to refer to cell protrusions. Can an unspecialized cell have both?

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps you may not have studied in your course but this information can be easily found in any cell biology textbook. Answer to this question can also be easily obtained from wikipedia. Therefore, I am afraid your question would be considered a homework and be put on hold. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Sep 19 '19 at 15:19
