We present a lattice-QCD calculation of the isovector parton distribution function (PDF) within the framework of large-momentum effective theory (LaMET). We detail the systematics that affect PDF calculations, providing guidelines to improve the precision of future lattice PDF calculations. We find our final parton distribution to be in reasonable agreement with the PDF provided by the latest phenomenological analysis.
