### Abstract

We present updates to a recent CTEQ-Jefferson Lab (CJ) global analysis of parton distribution functions with a new set of electroweak data that provide unique access to quark flavor separation in the proton. In particular, recent $\boldsymbol W$ and $\boldsymbol Z$ boson measurements from the STAR experiment at RHIC put additional constraints on light quarks and antiquarks near the valence regime. The new measurement of the Drell-Yan lepton pair production ratio in $\boldsymbol{p+p}$ and $\boldsymbol{p+d}$ collisions by the SeaQuest experiment at Fermilab extends the large-$\boldsymbol x$ coverage of the previous E866 experiment and sheds new light on the light antiquarks distribution. In this report, the impact of these new data sets on parton distribution functions will be presented with emphasis given to the flavor asymmetry of the light antiquark sea at large values of the parton momentum $\boldsymbol x$.

### Report

Very interesting result and recommend for immediate publication.

A few minor suggestions for during the editing/publication stage:

The figure indices in Fig . 1 and the associated description are slightly confusing. One could consider including (a), (b), (c), (d) on the plots or under the individual plots.
Fig.3, if the author could explain the uncertainty band, (theoretical  + experimental + fitting) would help the general audience's understanding.
