We present a determination of the nucleon parton distribution functions (ABM11) and the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s$ at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in QCD based on world data for deep-inelastic scattering and fixed-target data for Drell-Yan process. The analysis is performed in the fixed-flavor number scheme for $n_f=3,4,5$ and uses the \MSbar scheme for $\alpha_s$ and the heavy quark masses. The fit results are compared with other NNLO PDFs and used to compute the benchmark cross sections at hadron colliders to NNLO accuracy.
