Heavy flavor is a useful probe to study the property of the strongly coupled quark gluon plasma created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. They are produced in the early stage of the collisions, and then propagate though QGP. Therefore, they carry information of QGP. PHENIX measures the separated bottom and charm production using the precise tracking by the silicon vertex detector installed at mid-rapidity and forward rapidity. In this article, we present the recent results of separated charm and bottom modification in Au+Au and Cu+Au collisions, and charmonia production in p+Al and p+Au collisions.
