Extraction of the strange quark PDF is a long standing puzzle. We use
nCTEQ nPDFs with uncertainties to examine W/Z production at the LHC
and try to study both the nuclear corrections and the flavor
differentiation. This complements the information from neutrino-DIS
data. Additionally, we look ahead to future facilities such as EIC,
LHeC, and LHC upgrades and use a new tool, PDFSense, to estimate the
