Using an analytical method we calculate average conditional fixation time of mutants in a general graph-structured population of two types of species. The method is based on Markov chains and uses a mean-field approximation to calculate the corresponding transition matrix. Analytical results are compared with the results of simulation of the Moran process on a number of network structures.
