Hi I am new to bioinformatics and programming language. I am having trouble installing GATK following the biostar handbook. After install and register, it gives me error message command gatk not found when entered gatk -help. Hoping someone could help me with this.

I downloaded GATK3.8 from and then untar it by tar xjf GATK3.8-1-0-gf15c1c3ef.tar.bz2 then gatk3-register ~/GATK3.8-1-0-gf15c1c3ef/ and then it says it is copying to the environment but I cannot use it....

Please let me know if more information is needed.
