By default, predict() outputs predictions in terms of log odds unless type = "response" is specified. This converts the log odds to probabilities . Because a logistic regression model estimates the probability of the outcome, it is up to you to determine the threshold at which the probability implies action.

Earth heightmapLogistic regression is used in various fields, including machine learning, most medical fields, and social sciences. For example, the Trauma and Injury Severity Score (), which is widely used to predict mortality in injured patients, was originally developed by Boyd et al. using logistic regression.

In this paper, a new method, which is based on logistic regression method, is introduced to predict protein function from protein-protein interaction data. In the proposed method, associations among different functions are taken into account by representing a protein using all the functional annotations of its interaction protein partners.
