We study the strangeness contribution to nucleon matrix elements using Nf = 2 + 1 dynamical clover fermion configurations generated by the CP-PACS/JLQCD collaboration. In order to evaluate the disconnected insertion (DI), we use the Z(4) stochastic method, along with unbiased subtraction from the hopping parameter expansion which reduces the off-diagonal noises in the stochastic method. Furthermore, we find that using many nucleon sources for each configuration is effective in improving the signal. Our results for the quark contribution to the first moment hxiq in the DI, and the strangeness magnetic moment show that the statistical errors are under control with these techniques. We also study the gluonic contribution to the nucleon using the overlap operator to construct the gauge field tensor, Fµ . The application to the calculation of first moment, hxiG, gives a good signal in quenched lattice QCD.
