Aptamers are a class of oligonucleotide sequences which have been widely used in molecular medicine and other fields due to their excellent affinity and selectivity to targets. As an important frontier technology and application, the research of aptamers will have an important impact on the cultivation of high-quality talents. Introducing frontier technologies and applications about aptamers in teaching is of great help to meet the needs of the country and society, cultivate students' sense of social responsibility, and heighten their spirituality. Thus frontier technologies and applications about aptamers are necessary for analytical chemistry teaching reform. In this paper, how frontier technologies and applications about aptamers influence ideological education of analytical chemistry teaching are briefly discussed.

Key words: Chemistry teaching, Aptamers, Frontier academic, Teaching reform, Ideological education
