What happens if you type /home/Exome_seq/bwa-0.7.15/bwa directly? What does which bwa give? This is more of a linux configuration problem. In linux you don't need to install a binary to run it. The above code should be put in your .profile (best option) , .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home. Then log off and on or do a $ . .profile. This is all in case you need the freshest builds, otherwise have the sysadmin use the package system.

Which version of CentOS are you using ? At least for CentOS 7, bwa-0.7.12 is available in the epel repository so you can install it with yum (CentOS 6 has bwa-0.7.5)
